OPPA is a 501c(6) nonprofit trade organization.
We are entirely volunteer-led, with no paid staff. Everything that happens in OPPA is because a volunteer chose to step up and make it happen.
An 11-member Board of Directors leads the organization, governed by our bylaws and policies. We hold elections for Directors in October. Most board positions are two-year terms, so about half of the positions are up for election each year. To help ensure continuity of leadership, the Vice President is elected to a three-year term and they automatically move into the President and Immediate Past President roles over the following two years.
Various parts of the organization are managed by teams of folks led by a committee chair. Some of the committee chairs sit on the Board of Directors, while others have no responsibilities beyond their committee.
We’d love to have you help us make OPPA happen. Here are some of the areas in which OPPA is driven by volunteers.
