Run for Board of Directors

UMCRM Directors are elected by camp & retreat ministry peers from their Jurisdiction for 4-year terms, renewable once. Board Member Job Description Learn more about the Board on the About Us page

Serve on a Committee (Education, Development, Member Services, Communications Team)

Committees are chaired by members of the UMCRM Association board, but anyone who aligns with our mission and has time and talents to share may serve on a committee. Committee service is an open-ended (non-term-limited) commitment, but we request that new committee volunteers aim to serve at least two years. Please contact a committee chair (see About Us page) to express your interest.

Serve on a Task Force (Healthy Camps/Treasurers Task Force, Effective Camps Research Task Force, Conference Staff Summit Planning Team)

Task forces work on short-term initiatives of the UMCRM Association and members are recruited for their specific areas of expertise. Contact the Board Chair to indicate specific gifts you’re willing share on a task force. Task forces are chaired by invitation by an Association member, but need not be members of the Board of Directors.
