RACI Volunteer Committees are Affiliate* & REALTOR® member professionals who volunteer their time to support the central Indiana REALTOR® community. Volunteer committees work with RACI staff and our Board of Directors to achieve specific goals for the Association and the business of central Indiana REALTORS®. RACI supports your interests and dedication to your community, and we welcome your participation. When you volunteer and participate in RACI, YOU help make a difference! Joining a committee is a rewarding experience that will improve your Association, community, and your business.

RACI Volunteer Committees

RACI committees help connect our member professionals and our communities by providing outreach programs and events, while enhancing the community’s social and economic vitality.

From outreach to social gatherings to professional development, you’re sure to find a RACI Committee that interests you. Volunteer applications and appointments take place each fall (don’t worry, we encourage signing up all year long too!).
