Volunteer Opportunities:

The legislation that created RAD requires its Board of Directors to maintain a Citizen Advisory Board, composed of a diverse pool of individuals from throughout Allegheny County who represent RAD's broad range of community interests.

Each member of the RAD Citizen Advisory Board is appointed for a term of four years.

Duties include:

  • Two to three meetings per year
  • Advising the RAD board on a variety of issues including input on grantmaking, particularly for new applicants
    (Note: the advisory board does not vote on the RAD budget.)
  • Site visits to assets with an accompanying written report
  • Other duties and opportunities, based on interest and availability
  • One advisory member also serves as the liaison to the Allegheny County Library Association

Candidates must be residents of Allegheny County.

RAD values the input and support of its Citizen Advisory Board and in turn, aims to provide meaningful experiences and connections for its members. Those interested in joining RAD's Citizen Advisory Board are encouraged to send an email introduction along with a resume to Diane Hunt at dh@radworkshere.org. Advisory Board members must be nominated and appointed by the RAD Board.
