2022 RPCRA Committees

From the Desk of the President-elect

Fellow Members,

I am honored, being selected as your 2022 President. I take it as a great responsibility to you as Members, our Industry, and the Communities in which we work. All that we are as an Association and all that we do, internally and externally, is truly dependent on the success and effectiveness of our Committees. Committees that focus on their piece of the puzzle, their contribution to the over-all effort. Committees are the BACKBONE of our Organization.

Many of you have served tirelessly in the past and for that, we are eternally grateful! We would not be where we are today, had it not been for that dedication. We need continued participation to bring training, experience, and guidance to each of our Committees and our Organization as a whole. WE NEED NEW PARTICIPANTS, that bring fresh perspective, ideas, passion and energy to the table. With over 8500 Members, we have a wealth of knowledge and passion within our ranks. We have Many Minds, Many Hearts. Come bring your Heart and Mind and join in our One Voice that can change the lives of all those we come into contact with!

Please review the Committee descriptions and their area of focus and choose a few that you could make your greatest contribution to; those that you are passionate about; those where you believe you can make a difference. Encourage others to participate as well – we all know someone that could be a great contributor to each of our Committees and ultimately our Membership. While we likely won’t be able to meet every request, we will always find a place for those that volunteer to commit to contributing.

…and by the way, you’ll meet new people, make life-long relationships, AND HAVE FUN!!

Here’s to an INCREDIBLE 2022!
