Volunteering to serve on committees will help YOU put your leadership skills to work and provide further training that can only be learned through working for and with others. We hope you will find the perfect fit for you to express your love of reflexology.

Education Committee: RAA takes a leadership perspective when it comes to education. This committee is charged with examining the various pathways by which to improve and increase educational standards for reflexologists in the United States. Committee members must take into consideration many aspects when developing policies, including access to educational opportunities, cost and state legalities.
Elections Committee: Meets annually to find nominees, prepare and mail ballots, and tabulate results of the annual Board of Director’s elections.
Legislative Committee: A year-round committee dedicated to insuring the right of our members to practice reflexology independently from other professions. Members will train and be able to answer questions and represent RAA regarding legislative issues facing our profession; instruct state associations on the importance of a working legislative committee; write position papers, design brochures, create informational booklets, and attend hearings in support of a state association or an individual’s right to practice reflexology as a separate practice.
Magazine Committee: This committee designs and publishes the quarterly news magazine, Reflexology Across America, a benefit since the creation of RAA.
Membership Committee: A year-round committee that has the exciting responsibility for showing reflexology practitioners and proponents the benefits of membership in RAA. It also assists the RAA board in developing those benefits and identifying populations that would find membership mutually advantageous.
Public Relations and Advertising: looks at how RAA represents itself and reflexology to the public. Activities may include developing statements, policies and announcements regarding RAA’s presence on social media, partnerships with schools and related businesses, and website, conference and magazine advertising guidelines.
Website/Technology Committee: You don’t need to know HTML to join this committee. If you are familiar with WordPress website builders, that’s great! But we need ideas, and helpers to keep track of what needs changing on the website, and basic researchers to look for software when we are looking at making changes. As we grow, we need more abilities to make data reports and other more advanced website capabilities. This committee is responsible for maintenance and upgrades to the website and secure storage of RAA’s historical data and sensitive member information. The website underwent a complete upgrade and overhaul in the spring of 2014.
