Volunteer

OFMA has a number of opportunities for volunteers! We have several working committees, including Policy & Advocacy, Fundraising, Membership and Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and some ongoing, ad hoc marketing projects. Most committees require between 3-5 hours per month for participation. If you’re interested in volunteering your time and skills on one of our committees, please fill out the OFMA Volunteer Interest Form and let us know!

NOTE: We have a specific need right now for volunteers to join our fundraising committee! Check out the recruitment flyer, and apply before August 15th!
