About the Chapter

The Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Chapter, like all RMA chapters, is organized and run by volunteer members. We strongly encourage current or prospective members to become involved in shaping the future direction of the chapter by contacting any of the current officers or committee chairs. We would also be happy to discuss the many benefits that can be derived from membership in RMA.

In 2021-2022 the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Chapter Board will meet on the first Thursday of every month.  If you are interested in getting involved in the leadership of the Chapter, please contact one of the current board members for details on the meeting time and place (see "About Us" link above).
