2021 OAA Committee Vacancies

Deadline: October 16, 2020


Volunteers are important to the work of the OAA. A diversity of voices, opinions, skills, and knowledge is critical to the decision making process. Please consider volunteering on one of the nine Committees that have vacancies for the 2021–2023 term.
The OAA recognizes the inherent benefit of encouraging the active participation of all members in its volunteer opportunities, and is committed to having Committees representative of the profession now and in the future.
Recognizing the number of women in the profession is increasing, and the profession is becoming more diverse, the OAA commits to greater diversity and inclusion as well as to working toward gender parity in its appointments process. OAA Council formally adopted a policy that strives for inclusion, diversity, and gender parity on all its Committees back in 2017.

OAA Committees/Task Groups currently seeking volunteers beginning in January 2021 include:

• Complaints Committee;
• Discipline Committee;
• Experience Requirements Committee;
• Practice Resource Committee;
• Policy Advocacy Coordination Team (PACT);
• Registration Committee;
• Sub-Committee on Building Codes and Regulations (SCOBCAR);
• Sustainable Built Environments Committee (SBEC); and
• Interns Committee.

More information about the role of each Committee and what is required as a member is available on the OAA website. Architects interested in serving on any of the following Committees are encouraged to do the following:
