RC Local College Appointments  

As an alternative to having a local RC Director with personal authority to direct the Federation within the locality, a locality may choose to be directed by a college (SRCF 56 §2). At the local level, a college operates like a board or committee where authority rests with the body and not with one individual person. In this case, the RC local college is the group of people appointed by the Territorial Directive College to assume the same responsibilities as the local RC Director and RCD Council.

* College appointments are additions to existing colleges.
