In the new OPA structure now in effect since Convention 2017, there are national volunteer officer positions in three main officer levels:
Operational coordinators are entry-level roles, which will be responsible for performing specific duties to operate the national organization. Keeping these roles specific will allow those serving in these positions to have clear deliverables.
Managing directors and staff will act as “middle management.” Managing directors will have their own duties and also will supervise others. As OPA grows, some of the paid staff will be on this level as well.
The national executive board will be the top level of leadership and will consist of five members. These individuals will be responsible for strategic planning and ensuring strategic and vision goals are being met. If you are interested in petitioning for an NEB role in 2019, please visit the Elections page.
Five director positions bolded with an asterisk* in the list below will have elections at the spring District Summits starting on February 17, 2018. Click here to download a petition or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. These positions are for two-year terms. Click here for the position descriptions.
Petitions, photos, and taped interviews (more information on this will come after petitions are received) will be presented at each summit. Following summits, chapters and alumnae may cast ballots online for these officers. Alumnae delegates not attending a summit will be sent all the voting information individually.
