District 12 Director,
American Contract Bridge League
Board of Directors

District Directors set policy for the entire organization at the North American level.  Individual districts have their own government for more local self-governance.  Some function in a "central" manner in which the District controls funding of tournaments and such; others function in a "distributed" manner in which units within the district control funding of tournaments and such. 

District 12 is organized as a "distributed" network with a "central" website.
Many thanks to Alan Bau for his outstanding D12 webwork!  Please see that site for local or regional bridge matters.  This site is devoted to displaying national-level activities of this Board member.
