Are you thinking of joining the OSCA Board in May? Read more to find out about what you can expect:

The Board meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm at the Old Ottawa South Community Centre (the Old Firehall at 260 Sunnyside Avenue). Depending on workload, the Board may not meet in July and August.

In general, we ask Board members to commit to one Board meeting monthly in addition to sitting on a committee/subcommittee/project group. Committee work is generally 1.5 - 2 hours monthly. 

We send a board package to all board members on the Thursday prior to the Tuesday meeting. In the package are an agenda, summary reports and decision items which board members are required to read. 

In addition, there are short information pieces each month, that outline a project or proposal in more detail and will involve active board discussion. 

The preparation for board meetings can be done within 30-45 minutes.

When submitting your interest in joining the OSCA board, please let us know a little about your background and area of interest. And if there are any committees of the board that you may be interested in joining. Committee information and Terms of Reference can be found on the bottom left of our homepage here.

Please note:
