Board Members

Explore Joining 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.

Right now, AIRS accreditation and AIRS certification are the priority for CAIRS! This is a remarkable opportunity and challenge to us as the premier Information and Referral organization in the State. This is the moment for increased involvement from more of you in the field. We are looking for leadership from the information and referral field in general and for those with expertise in serving those in the military, youth, seniors and children. We are also interested in recruiting to the board those who could bring particular targeted expertise to our field – business, technology, disaster preparedness and employment.
