About the Chapter

The Maine Chapter, like all RMA chapters, is organized and run by volunteer members. We strongly encourage current and 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.
