The Executive Committee volunteers make sure Rhode Island’s ocean, waves & beaches are protected, and that the chapter runs smoothly.  Positions are for two-year terms; officers may rotate roles after two years but cannot serve in the same role for consecutive terms.  All current dues-paying members are welcomed and encouraged to run for office!  A formal announcement for elections is made two months in advance of when positions become available. Inquire about EC roles or other core volunteer leadership positions (which are ALWAYS available!) by emailing our full Executive Committee: ri@surfrider.org.  Thank you!
