Associations are built on a system of committee actions, linking the association with the attitudes and the real world of its members. Committees represent, involve, and serve members, as well as provide an important training ground for future leaders. Committees are an effective work force for the association -- they ensure group participation in problem solving and provide a forum for the many interests within the association. If you would like to volunteer to be part of a committee, see the Committee Volunteer Information for further details. RIMS currently has the following committees, sub-committees and task forces:
