Get Involved!

All RCP members and anyone interested are encouraged to become further involved with the Partnership by contributing through our committees.

1. Standing Committees – Standing Committees will operate as an entity of the board of directors and will work towards achieving specific duties of the Board and toward the RCP’s mission and goals. Standing Committee memberships open to any member of the RCP.

  • Finance Committee
    Chair: Jessica Makosky,
    The Finance Committee is responsible for developing and reviewing fiscal procedures, a fundraising plan, and an annual budget with staff and other board members.
  • Technical Advisory Committee
    Chair: Amy Mackey,
    The Technical Advisory Committee, i.e. Raccoon Creek Forum, will assist with and develop research ideas, and investigate, plan, and recommend water quality improvement or protection projects for the RCP. The committee will provide advice, direction, and guidance on scientific and technical matters related to water quality and watershed issues to the Board and members.
  • Membership and Development Committee
    The Membership and Development Committee will evaluate and provide guidance to the Board and members regarding operating procedures and policy. The committee will also be responsible for recruiting partnership members and handle membership related tasks.

2. Special Committees – The Board of Directors shall have the authority to appoint special committees as necessary, and at their discretion, and to appoint a chairperson of that committee from the Board. Special Committee membership is open to any member of the RCP.

In addition, the Raccoon Creek Water Trail Association, a citizen led effort and component of the RCP is always looking for more people to help develop Raccoon Creek as a state designated water trail. The Water Trail Association and RCP conduct annual canoe floats on Raccoon Creek to enjoy the creek and its natural beauty! Contact Molly Gurien, RCWTA Chair, at
