National Board Volunteer Positions

In the OPA reorganized structure in effect since Convention 2017, there are national volunteer officer positions in these levels:

The sorority’s national Board of Directors (BOD) (formerly the national executive board) is the top level of leadership and consists of five members who are elected at the national convention. These individuals are responsible for strategic planning and ensuring vision goals are being met. For more information, please visit the Elections page.

Operational Leadership Team (OLT) members act as “middle management.” They have their own duties and also supervise operational coordinators. While most are appointed by the BOD, five positions are elected at the spring district summits, and some are contracted with nonmembers.

Operational Coordinators are entry-level, appointed positions, responsible for performing specific duties for the national organization. Keeping these roles specific allow those serving in these positions to have clear deliverables.

How to Volunteer for an Open Appointment

Applications for open 2018–20 appointments (coordinators and some OLT) are now being accepted through August 1, 2019. For questions or more details on job descriptions, please email volunteers@omegaphialpha.org. To apply for an OPEN appointed (not elected) OLT or coordinator position, please submit a volunteer interest form including a letter of intent. OLT roles are two-year terms (2018–20), and coordinators are one-year terms (2019–20) to be reappointed by the OLT officers after yearly review. Elections for some OLT roles (two-year terms) were held at the Spring 2018 district summits.
