 Volunteers are the strength of the association and instrumental in OLCA being able to continue to properly serve its membership. If you're not already serving on a committee and are a member of OLCA, we would like to invite you to join one (or more!) of the following committees or Board leadership. There are several opportunities to volunteer in OLCA and we look forward to your invaluable contribution.

You're asking, what does volunteering as a Board or Committee Member mean?

You’ll meet a few times a year with the OLCA Board or Committee in person (when feasible) or virtually to plan strategy and provide advice and subject matter expertise. Don’t worry, OLCA staff will manage and execute the projects so the time commitment isn't too large.
