What our members say about RCAS:
“No man is an island. That is a universal truth and especially true for people involved in agriculture and agricultural research. The RCAS is a critical link for our Research Station Superintendents in North Carolina to be connected to others who face the same challenges and opportunities every day. Our members frequently rely on Center Administrators in other states for advice, ideas, and comradery. Before embarking on initiatives such as new technology, we know that there is someone within the society that has had some experience and we want to draw on that experience. Members are open and honest and it truly is a society. The Annual Meeting and the Summer Meeting are both great opportunities to form bonds and learn from others. You always learn by talking with others and seeing similar operations in other states. The RCAS is an organization in which we find great value and look to support its growth”.
