Program Hosts complete any set up and tear down required (based upon needs of program) and act as a liaison between the program and the RCA to communicate any needs for equipment, supplies or funding. Hosts also have a key role in developing the program scope and activities for attendees. This is a year round, fixed position with exact hours and frequency depending on individual program needs.
These roles can also be split between two people so if you and a friend are both interested, it is definitely possible to share the role!
The programs and groups that we run are based on community feedback and availability of Program Hosts, so if you have an idea for a new program or group and you are willing to be the Program Host, please get in touch and we very likely make it happen!
Committee’s are tasked with a sole function or purpose, like planning a Stampede Breakfast or tackling the planning and fundraising of the Ranchero Park Redevelopment project.
If you have an interest in joining a committee, please reach out for more details as responsibilities and time commitments vary based on the committee.
Board of Directors
Directors on the board will need to commit to at attending one board meeting per month (2 hours per meeting) in addition to being the lead planner on one event, assistant planner on one event and acting as lead on one grant application.
