Interested in running for election?

The Nominations Committee is now seeking candidates interested in running for election to our Board of Directors.

Review the position descriptions below and consider applying for one of these strategic roles.

Board of Directors roles are strategic in nature, stretching beyond how OPA currently operates to identify how our sorority can thrive in the future. Except for the national president position, previous OPA operational experience isn’t required. In fact, relevant experience in your professional career can be extremely important for these roles. So please consider all of your life experience – both within OPA and in your career path – as you consider applying to run for one of these positions. And if you know a member who may be a good fit for one of these roles, please give them a nudge to apply!
