Treasurer, NMRA Australasian RegionJohn Gillies has been a member of the NMRA since 1993. He's a past Division 2 Superintendent and was a member of the organising committee and registrar for the 2013 Convention held in Canberra. John has over a decade's involvement with the Division's modular exhibition layout group and has been looking after its finances for over a year.
John is also a member of the NMRA Layout Design and Operations Special Interest Groups. He's a second half of 1976 era Burlington Northern modeller who's very slowly building a HO scale layout which focuses on parts of the main line between Spokane and Sandpoint. He also has a real interest in the freight cars of his modelling era.
John looks forward to being Australasian Region Treasurer and giving James Wyatt a well deserved break after more than five years in the position. A phone call from the President of the NMRA AR resulted in John nominating for the Treasurer's position. John's pre-retirement work included some years of financial management specialisation.
