Committees/Volunteers

We need you!  FCRA depends on the volunteer services of our members.  Committees are formed immediately after the Annual Convention.  Remember, FCRA depends on its committee members to be our boots on the ground, whether it’s through the Membership Committee reaching out to new potential members, the Government Relations Committee working hand-in-hand with our lobbyist, the PR Task Force presenting educational seminars to paralegals across the state, or the Fundraising Committee handling our annual fundraiser.  Each committee is an integral part of how FCRA is out there working for you.

To find out more about a committee (or two) that interests you, feel free to contact the current committee chair to request more information.  To volunteer to serve, please fill out the following form:
