RWAU Committees

Committee Terms August 2019-August 2021

The Board President and Executive Director serve as ex-officio members for all committees


Reorganization of Committees

The RWAU Board uses several committees to help improve Association activities and events. These committees are made up of Board Members, Staff, and System Members.

Committees serve a two-year term that coordinate with the change of presidency of the Board of Directors. Each new Board President assigns new committee chairs, and then each committee chair will select the appropriate committee members. In general, committees are active from the month of August in odd years, through the end of July two years later.

If you are interested in serving on an RWAU committee please fill out the form below to volunteer. Your name will then be added to the list of volunteers for Board Members to choose from when forming committees. Thank you!
