How to Volunteer
|General Committee Information|
NCRA consists of three interacting groups of people.
First are the members. Members are why NCRA exists.
Next are the volunteers who work on the committees, task forces, councils, and boards that recommend policy and accomplish the work of the association. In any given year, about 275 members are providing the leadership and technical know-how that enable our committees and task forces to complete their assignments.
Finally, our headquarters staff provides specialized expertise and the fulltime manpower needed to handle the details of organizational management and to help build programs as directed by the leadership.
To the member who has never been involved in the workings of NCRA, it seems as though everything just … happens. Conventions are planned and held, magazines written and delivered, exams created and administered, all like clockwork.
But every program and activity of the Association has behind it a network of volunteers and staff responsible for it. If they don’t do their jobs, the program or activity simply doesn’t happen.
As important, volunteering benefits the volunteer. It provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, networking, and the chance to form lifelong friendships.
NCRA is looking for members who want to become involved and make a difference in their profession. Check out the list of committees, task forces, and councils. See which ones interest you and then fill out a brief form (click on the link below) to let us know a little about your background and interests and which committee you are interested in serving on. We can't promise a committee assignment for everyone who is interested, but we will try to match your interests and background with our committee staffing needs.
Volunteering isn’t for everyone. But it might be just right for you.
