Volunteer for a Committee

Committee Volunteer Opportunities

What Are Committees? 

When it comes to making decisions, our committees are the first place where ideas are discussed and voted upon before being approved by the Board of Directors. 

Why Serve on a Committee? 

Committees help shape the direction of our Association and its policies. If you want your voice to be heard and want to contribute to the decision-making process, our committees are a great forum for debate and discussion. Experience on committees is beneficial for those interested in seeking future leadership roles.

What are the Benefits of Volunteering?

Association involvement establishes that you care about your profession and your community. Serving on a committee is a great way to enhance your professional growth and provide service to your peers. Research shows that the people who work on association committees are: better informed - better networked - better prepared to act on trends and regulation impacting their business RSCK will make every attempt to meet your requests. You will receive an email informing you of your appointments in late November – early December. Some Committees are limited in number of appointments available. The Professional Standards Committees & Grievance Committees require specific experience.  Affiliate members may serve on Community Involvement, Events, and Professional Development.
