As the chair of the RAPS Chicago Chapter, I'd like to personally welcome you to the RAPS community! By being a member of RAPS, not only are you connected to 14,000+ regulatory professionals worldwide, but you also have access to a vibrant regulatory community right here in your geographic region.

The RAPS Chicago Chapter conducts a number of professional development and networking activities throughout the year to help members connect, build relationships and increase knowledge, competence and performance. RAPS is a volunteer-driven organization, and I've found that the more I put into it, the more I get back. There are a number of volunteer opportunities available at the chapter and national levels, and I'm happy to help you identify something that meets your interests and serves your personal growth needs.

If you are a RAPS member, log in for full access to the chapter member directory and the discussion board. Members residing outside of the chapter served region can find and join a chapter's online community from the chapter community listing.

I hope you will join us at our next event. I look forward to introducing you to some of our other members and volunteers. Again, welcome to RAPS and please let us know if we can be of assistance.
