The work of CRD is divided into three categories: Programming, Marketing and Membership, and Development. Each of these areas is led by volunteer CRD member Directors . Committees fall into the three categories and are chaired and populated by CRD members. CRD national office staff support the work of the committees.

55 volunteers. Recruitment in May, 2012
Our staff believe in connecting people, resources and opportunities. CRD helps us drive these actions by providing tools and training so we can educate our board and volunteers, strengthen our skills and knowledge base, and find support and mentoring from our peers throughout the country. We're steeped in the culture to thank our donors, and now is a chance to turn around and thank CRD and all its members for helping us be successful in building a strong and committed group of donors and volunteers. Thanks CRD!"
