We are in the process of rolling out a soft launch of the RDA website, which includes a new member platform. Visitors may encounter functionality issues pertaining to group pages, navigation, missing content, broken links, etc. As you explore the new site, please provide your feedback using the UserSnap tool found throughout the site. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support as we work through all issues as quickly as possible.

The Regional Advisory Board (RAB) is responsible for overseeing the activities of both RAB and the Regional Assembly (RA). RAB provides advice to the Council on issues of interest to the Regions and informs and steers the Council on regional issues.

Two co-chairs are elected to maximise the benefits of Regions to the RDA and the RDA to the Regions and to bring issues and concerns from Regions to the Council, and from the Council to Regions. RAB seeks consensus and resolves any differences of opinion across Regions.
