          Sandy Gruber
n her retirement!
January 2020


The RMA Wisconsin Chapter would like to announce the retirement of Sandy Gruber as our chapter administrator.  Sandy has served our chapter for 20 years and has been a key resource for our board of directors and members over the years.  Sandy’s contributions have been instrumental in the success of the chapter.  We wish Sandy all the best in her retirement!!


Sandy’s retirement has led to the hiring of Erica Deren as our new chapter administrator.  Erica brings a great deal of experience, enthusiasm and ideas to assist our chapter.  We are excited to have Erica as a part of the team and welcome her as she began her responsibilities in early December.


The transition has led to a new mailing address for the chapter.  Correspondence for the RMA Wisconsin Chapter should be sent to:

The Wisconsin 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.
