ORRA members help chart ORRA's direction by sharing their time, talents, and expertise as a volunteer on an ORRA committee.

At the end of each year, ORRA seeks individuals to fill openings on some of its more than 20 committees, task forces, councils, and forums.

Committee appointments are held at the end of calendar year; however, some committees placements are available throughout the year. We encourage you to apply for possible appointment by the ORRA Board of Directors.
