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.
