The RCRA grew out of a common need among program directors to share information. The six individuals who were the founders of this organization need to be commended for their foresight and their ability to bring a dream into reality. These individuals are indeed innovators and example professionals. This is illustrated by the fact that one of the primary thrusts of the organization is devoted to professional development as well as initiation of future professionals. These individuals have established very important links with colleges and universities across the country to help educators better design their curricula and help students find employment in the profession.
