Quarterly Meetings

RCA hosts four quarterly meetings each year.  At these, members and their guests experience a presentation from a speaker or panel of speakers on a topic of interest to the total rewards community.  There are networking opportunities, updates from the RCA board and a delicious breakfast as well.

There is no charge for RCA members to attend.  Guests may attend for $50.  Many of the RCA presentations are pre-approved for HRCI credits.

The quarterly meeting programs offered by RCA are coordinated by the two Directors of Professional Development, in conjunction with the RCA Planning Committee.  Members will receive an email approximately one month before each quarterly meeting that will include a link to RSVP.

If you are interested in becoming an active member of the Planning Committee, or have suggestions for future programs, please contact the Co-directors of Professional Development.
