Region B Chapter of the year coordinators

Robert & Julie A'Hearn

Julie and I are very excited for our return to the Region B staff, this time as the Chapter of the Year Coordinators.  We look forward to working with all our Northeast Region Districts & Chapters.
Here’s our biography for your reading pleasure;
Robert (Bob) A’Hearn was born in Buffalo New York, and was raised in the suburbs of Tonawanda. After High School, Bob joined the United States Navy, and retired in 2006 as a Master Chief Petty Officer (E-9), with over 30 years of faithful and dedicated service.  He’s now employed as a Defense Contractor for BAE Systems.
Julie was born in Fort Benning Georgia and raised in Monterey California.  She left home in 1981 and joined the United States Navy, and retired as a Chief Petty Officer (E-7) after 22 years of faithful and dedicated service.  She is still retired.
Bob & Julie met in the late ‘80’s, dated in the late 90’s, and were finally married in September 2003.
Since joining GWRRA in 2005, they have been very active in the organization.  Positions held included Chapter Visit & Mileage Coordinators, Assistant Chapter Directors (ACD’s), and finally Chapter Directors (CD’s), holding the position four years and becoming Senior Chapter Directors.  They are also qualified as Level IV Riders, and University Trainers certified in Rider Ed, Leadership Training, and Membership Enhancement.  Julie is also certified as MFA / CPR Instructor.
After stepping down from the Chapter Directors position, the “Southern Wings” of MD-I nominated them as their 2012 Chapter Couple of the Year.  They also accepted the position as the Chapter of the Year Coordinators.
During their reign as the MD-I Chapter of the Year Coordinators, their home Chapter was selected as the 2012 MD District and the NE Region Chapter of the Year.
The beginning of 2013, Bob & Julie were selected as the MD District Couple of the Year.  Also, they accepted the MD District Leadership Trainer position, and were promoted to Senior University Trainers.
Later that year, Bob & Julie were selected as the Region B Couple of the Year.
The summer of 2014 in Madison Wisconsin, they proudly represented Region B during the International Couple of the Year selection process at Wing Ding 36.
They presently reside in Leonardtown Maryland, with their three dogs, Joey, Gracie, and Snowball.
