EDUCATOR MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

RCRA is an organization that understands university funding and the need for educators to present and publish research on their way to tenure or promotion. We also help educators with student internship placement goals.  These two areas are the main focus for our educator members that attend the annual national conference.

With most organizations, the benefits stop here.

Our educator members have a rich history within the RCRA organization. One of our goals is to welcome educators from across the country. The relationships built within the organization offer exposure to the latest industry trends and experiences. Read on to learn more about why you should become an educator member.
