Board of Directors

RMBA’s Board of Directors volunteer to serve our members. The board meets at least quarterly and communicates year-round to provide leadership for the association and plan upcoming events. The President, Vice President and Secretary are elected annually and directors are elected for two-year terms. The Treasurer is appointed each year by the board. Every year, two director positions are up for election.
