The RTAM Executive and Chapter Presidents have approved a proposal to establish a six- year rotation of responsibility to recruit new members to serve on RTAM committees for a two-year term. Committee members who decide thereafter to stand for election as an RTAM Director, will also be guaranteed that they will not have to chair a committee during their first year on the Board.
The Benefits at a Glance document comparing the RTAM (Johnson), MTS (Blue Cross) and WTA (Manulife) Insurance plans has been completed by the Benefits Committee. The document will be used as a recruitment/marketing tool in the future.
