Not all applicants are guaranteed to be successful in their application to join the board of directors.

Becoming a Volunteer: We welcome all people to become involved in advocating for civil liberties. For those without civil liberties experience, it is suggest that volunteering with RMCLA occurs for a while before joining the board to ensure familiarity with RMCLA policies, how civil liberties policy development occurs, various laws associated with civil liberties, and limitations to civil liberties policy development. Joining a policy committee is an excellent way to begin with RMCLA. We welcome your application to volunteer at: secretary@rmcla.ca
