Thank you for choosing to explore the RQA Volunteer Programme. Volunteers play a huge and important role in the Association; they are integral to RQA's success.

There are a number of ways in which volunteers can support RQA activity:

  • Time-based; usually for Committee membership
  • Task-based; generally for single-task projects
  • Virtual; typically to promote RQA.

This approach allows Volunteers to choose to support RQA in a manner that suits the Volunteer without over-committing their time. The opportunities are endless.

RQA relies upon the knowledge and commitment of dedicated Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to support its members by providing news updates, liaising with regulators, developing new products, and organising events. By volunteering your time and knowledge we hope that the volunteer experience can make a real difference to your career, the profession and your association.

I hope that you find your volunteer role to be fulfilling and rewarding. Please feel free to contact the RQA office with any queries or concerns.

Welcome, and thank you.

Anthony Wilkinson
RQA Director of Operations
