Why volunteer on our Board of Directors?

We would love to have you contribute to our Board of Directors team. Here's a few things to help you decide before applying.

While we each take on a specific role, like Membership or Programs, you influence and collaborate on the direction of our entire OD Community for your 2 year term. We are a working board and collaborate to strategize AND execute on our role responsibilities.  You must be an active member to be considered for a role.

LEVEL OF COMMITMENT:

  • All Board roles have a time commitment of 2 years and a minimum of 5 hours a month of work. IMPORTANT: Just like all businesses -monthly time commitments vary according to season and type of event we're delivering (virtual or in-person)

  • Each board member is accountable for attending monthly team meetings that involve planning and executing our events which are our #1 deliverable to you as our Members! 

  • Each Board member is accountable for attending the majority of our events
     

ACCOUNTABILITIES:

  • As a team - we are committed to responding to each other within 1-2 business days, even if it's simply to say "I saw your email - I will action that on the weekend."

  • Within our Board Member role - we are committed to respond to Members within a business day - even if it's to respond and say "I saw your request and I need a few days to follow through since it involves a few other team members (or vendor support)"
