    2016 Annual Meeting
The RCASA Board of Directors is comprised of 26 members representing 12-plus community sectors including: school, health, law enforcement, youth, parents, business, behavioral health, and pharmacy. The board serves as the core leadership group for the coalition. The Reading Police Department, Town Manager, and School Department, serve as organizational leaders for the coalition.  The Reading Recreation Committee, Clergy Council, Board of Selectman, School Committee, Burbank YMCA, Austin Prep, and Board of Health provide liaisons to the RCASA Board. In addition to these positions, we benefit from the leadership involvement of youth, parents, health professionals, and business leaders. 
As general evidence of their commitment, board members carry out the following duties:
  • Complete an updated contact form on an annual basis
  • Appoint a representative(s) to participate in coalition meetings/activities
  • Read minutes, reports and newsletters to keep abreast of coalition decisions/activities
  • Disseminate relevant information to organizational members or employees

Members provides overall governance, financial oversight, planning, fundraising, education, public relations and communications, membership management, review and ongoing assessment of all programs at regular intervals, and guides implementation of strategic plan. The board typically meets monthly at the Reading Police Department.
