The REAIE Committee
The REAIE Committee is an entirely volunteer group that serves the membership through project groups and collective decision making.
Project groups meet regularly and are responsible for proposing the scope of work relevant to their project, the budget, the time frame and the resources.
Each month the whole committee meets to hear about the progress of each of the projects and to respond to any pressing issues. Each committee member sits on one or two project groups.
Much time, many skills and numerous points of view are needed to make the work happen. Many REAIE members and the Network Groups through the Network Conveners offer suggestions and feedback about the future directions of the organisation.
Committee members are elected for a two year term. If you are interested in being involved with the REAIE Committee, please click here.
