RPI is looking for board candidates with terms beginning January 1, 2019. The election will be held virtually in October and through an online ballot.
Being a board member is an interesting and rewarding job. At monthly meetings throughout the year, including two in-person meetings, you will share ideas and partner with thought leaders in our industry. Your efforts can help make a difference in the well-being of our association and our members.
- Board terms are a three-year commitment (2019-2021).
- Candidates should be action-oriented, enthusiastic, honest and hardworking.
- Active professional practitioner members and eligible business partner members will be considered for candidacy.
- Board members typically serve as committee chairpersons and/or serve on committees performing various tasks and responsibilities.
- Ability to travel to two in-person Board meetings.
The board conducts the majority of business via email, telephone and monthly calls. There is no monetary compensation for board membership. However, in recognition of their efforts, board members are offered discounts on the annual conference fee. Board members also have the personal satisfaction that comes from being a part of the action for this wonderful association.
