Looking for a way to give back, meet and connect with peers, develop news skills and interests? Consider volunteering for the Ottawa Region Rewards Association (ORRA). Volunteering is a great opportunity to expand your personal network of total rewards professionals and to be a champion for advancing the profession.

Time commitments are flexible and vary depending on the program you choose to get involved with. You can choose to help out at an event (planning or working at a registration desk), get involved at the program or planning level, or take on a full leadership role for the organization.

Why Volunteer?

  • All non-profit organizations run on the strength of their volunteers — we are no different.
  • We have several teams that need your support.
  • Within each team you can apply your skills, interests and passion to help shape how we communicate and what programs and courses we bring to our members.
  • It’s a fantastic way to develop your own skills and build some new relationships — and have some FUN along the way!

How to Become a Volunteer

It’s simple. Get in touch with one of our board members to discuss the opportunity over a coffee.

How to Become a Board Member

Do you have an interest in joining the ORRA Board of Directors? Ask yourself these questions:
  • Do you have passion for this profession and the development of total rewards capabilities?
  • Do you think you can contribute to the board? Do you have knowledge, skills, experience, contacts, or some other qualities that will help the board meet its mandate?
  • Can you give your time and use your expert planning and time management skills to meet the needs of the role?
There is no question that being a member of the board brings great personal value — expanding your network raising your professional profile, and building your leadership and project management skills.

To become a member of ORRA’s Board of Directors, you must be an active member of the association (if not already a member, must become a member within 10 days of appointment) and be at least 18 years old.

Board elections are held annually at the ORRA annual general meeting every March. Available positions are advertised by the current Board. Candidates are identified and their names are shared with the membership. At least two-thirds of members must vote for each board member.
