OAA Elections                                    

Volunteering and being elected to serve on Council offers many rewards: It’s your opportunity to share your expertise and learn in depth about other aspects of the profession, regulation, the association’s structure, as well as numerous programs and services. It’s a chance to gain a wealth of information, give back to and influence the future of the profession.

There are a full range of opportunities. Your level of involvement depends on your interest and availability. Volunteer hours may include meetings, attending seminars and industry events, hands-on work, advocacy and outreach. Architects who sit on Council are looked to for their knowledge and expertise.

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding opportunity that will make a difference to the profession, joining OAA Council may be just what you are looking for. You may also wish to encourage another member to join Council. Please contact your local Council representative for more information about serving on Council.
