Why CAIR?

CAIR has multiple volunteer opportunities. We welcome the contributions of all attendees and friends of CAIR and make every effort to make use of members’ talents in ways that are mutually beneficial. The areas listed below are examples within the general category of volunteer opportunities. Please contact a CAIR Board member to inquire about current activities or Association needs. Volunteering with CAIR provides an opportunity to network, get involved, and contribute your ideas. Typically, volunteering is the first step to taking on a larger leadership role. And — it’s great for your professional development and resume building!

Board Positions

Each year the CAIR Board elects new Officers and Directors to the Board to fill vacant positions. While each position has its own unique set of qualifications, generally those running for elected positions will have experience with one or more of CAIR’s committees and/or volunteering with CAIR. More information about the nominations and election process will be coming in late May.

Advisory Committees

CAIR has several ongoing committees which carry out the organization’s mission and goals. These committees work under the supervision of a CAIR Board member providing recommendations and advice to the Board. While some committees require persons with specific expertise (such as assessment, program proposal review, phone app), others do not. Committees do their work by email and conference call. The time commitment varies by committee, ranging from approximately 2-6 hours per month. The call for volunteers opens in January.

2018 Advisory Committees and Volunteers

The following list contains the 2018 Advisory Committees, the Board member chairing the committee, and individuals who have volunteered. The CAIR board would like to thank all of the volunteers for their time and their contributions this year.
