The HQ RIO Individual Reservist (IR) Advisory Council is a forum for HQ RIO leadership, RIO Detachment and Operating Location leadership, and a cross section of IRs to give a consolidated voice to all IRs. This council gives IRs the opportunity to identify issues experienced in the field, help identify IR-based solutions, and ultimately provide recommendations to the HQ RIO/CC for action.

IMAs, MAs and PIRR members from any AFSC and rank are eligible to participate. Members serve for a period of 1 year starting each FY with the option to renew membership each year with a 2-year term limit. (NOTE: This is a volunteer additional duty, not an IMA position.)
