Area Reps are able to answer questions about homeschooling and about OFTP. If there is no Area Representative for your area and you have questions, please email email@example.com

not having yet received your membership card, newsletter, or access to the
yahoogroups. For help in regards to those enquiries, please contact the membership secretary.
Our Area Representatives' names, phone numbers and email addresses are listed
on the OFTP Area Reps page. The map on that page
is divided into 3 regions Southwest, Southeast and North which
are themselves divided into numbered counties. Area Reps are listed by main
region and in geographical/numerical order by county. You can also look up
your city or county by name in the index of links below:

You can use this list to locate your area by name. It will link you to the
corresponding section of the OFTP Area Reps page,
