Committees

The RSA currently has five committees. By joining a committee you would greatly help the association and make it possible to organize bigger and more events as well as improve the growth of the association. On this page you can find more information on our committees. If you are interested in joining one of these, feel free to sign up.

Each committee has been assigned a board member. Therefore you will receive support and help from the board and will be actively working together. The committees meet up weekly or bi-weekly, depending on the committee. The workload can be adjusted depending on your own schedule, expect 2 to 6 hours of work per week.
