The Senior Associate is our primary contact, and the key to the continuous support of RMA objectives and activities. Where practical, your institution should appoint, as its Senior Associate, the senior risk management officer, the chief executive officer, or individuals having significant management responsibility. The Senior Associate should:
- Participate in Headquarters' and local chapter activities;
- Be responsible for disseminating educational materials and notices of RMA activities to the proper people within the institution;
- Oversee the institution's participation in RMA surveys, studies and competitions, including RMA's Annual Statement Studies program and its other periodic data gathering and market-research surveys;
- Cast the institution's vote in RMA matters and be known throughout the institution as its spokesperson in RMA matters.
Regional Senior Associate
The Regional Senior Associate is the primary RMA contact for large member institutions that operate in more than one geographic region of the country. Although the Senior Associate is the primary RMA contact for the institution, the Regional Senior Associate is the contact in his or her region and the primary regional representative to RMA's Regional Managers.
The Regional Senior Associate is the key to continuous support of RMA activities and membership at the regional, state and market-area level. Where practical, the institution should appoint as its Regional Senior Associate the senior credit/risk officer, senior commercial loan officer, or senior manager for a region, state, or market area. The Regional Senior Associate should:
- Be known throughout his or her area as the authority on RMA;
- Advocate RMA membership, chapter participation, and event attendance within his or her area;
- Participate in local chapter activities as feasible.
The Alternate Associate temporarily assumes the responsibilities of the Senior Associate if that position becomes vacant. This person should be of senior stature.
