How to Get Involved
RAIN is a Business Resource Group for LGBTQ+ and allies working for the State of Washington. With supervisor permission, employees are able to use 2-3 hours of work time every month to participate.
General Membership Meetings are open to all state employees. They are currently via zoom and scheduled every third Thursday of the month 2–4 p.m., followed by committee work time 4–5 p.m.
Email RAIN@ofm.wa.gov for more information on our upcoming meetings.
New to the group? Consider arriving a few minutes early to talk with the co-chairs about areas you might like to get involved! We also offer time at the beginning of the meeting for new members to introduce themselves (completely voluntary).
Leadership: Elections are held annually for the four officer positions. There are also many leadership opportunities to co-chair a subcommittee or represent RAIN at events and trainings on an ongoing basis.
Currently looking for:

Psst... These are great opportunities to gain leadership skills, specialized training, and just plain skills... If you're interested in self-fulfillment and ways to build your resume, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
