  • Why did you change the RAA Website?
    Over the years, in order to serve our amazing members, RAA acquired a set of separate technology tools to support our mission. Consolidating these technical solutions to reduce costs, improve capabilities, support our volunteers and better serve our membership was an important driver. Staying solvent and providing opportunities for our members during the pandemic drove the implementation of online exhibitions, and addition of touchless services to keep our community of artists safe. Our hope is the new website provides a modern, flexible technical solution to support our core mission: enable community outreach and collaboration, and make life at the RAA more transparent.
