The RMA meets every Wednesday except when it conflicts with a major holiday. Attendance at the weekly meetings is approximately 120 members plus guests.
At each meeting, a number of areas need to be addressed by volunteer members. The American flag and the RMA banner are displayed for each meeting. Audio and visual equipment must be made ready and functional for presentations.
Although all seating and table arrangements are furnished and set up by staff from our venue, alternate arrangements may require assistance from volunteer members.
Our organization’s bulletin board keeps members updated on any number of topics including sporting events, local volunteer opportunities, activities at the Greenwich Senior Center and random information of interest to members. Keeping this information orderly and informative requires vigilance, control and flexibility.
Following the meeting, all RMA equipment is secured and a visual inspection of the venue conducted for personal items left by members (eye glasses, coats, etc). Setting up and breaking down equipment for a meeting do not involve a lot of time, but reporting a bit early and leaving a little late are part of the job.
One of the main goals in the RMA mission statement is meaningful volunteerism. Volunteer efforts in RMA activities are recognized and are counted when counting volunteer hours. Members should consider participating in the activities of the Set Up Committee. It will be a quick start in learning the ropes and a good way to meet other members.
Call on Bob Bishop to learn how you can help. You will feel rewarded by your efforts.
