Networking with Other Groups is very important to advance our common interests. These other groups could be local, national, or worldwide, newly formed or well established. They also may be ad hoc groups that have formed through the cooperation and efforts of our chapter and guild system.
Outside groups may be loosely connected (no fee) or become formally associated with us. The latter would become an RCM Affiliate Group and pay a annual fee based on their size, and in turn we help them organizationally and promote them in our publications, verbally, and at our events.
Although not necessary, mutual membership could be desirable and helpful.
