Serving on a board is a great way to support work that you care about. It can also be a powerful way to build your own skills and expertise through participation in meetings with other people as committed about the cause as you are.

OFA is made up of general members from the community as well as businesses and other community organizations that support the work we do. Community members can come to board meetings but they don't participate in the meetings unless they are members of the Board of Directors. Being a Community Member, you can join many of our board committees and contribute in a more formal way. If that's not of interest to you, you can become a member and support OFA by getting involved in many of the activities happening at OFA.
