About the CAIRS Board

Like any other professional association CAIRS does not run itself. It takes the leadership, hard work and cooperation of its members to simply survive, much less flourish, prosper and succeed. Because we do not have paid staff, it has taken the participation, planning and implementation efforts of Board members and other individual CAIRS members for our conferences, training, newsletters and advocacy to succeed.
