Current Volunteer Committees

ORAC supports may different committees that support both the association and the industry. All members are encouraged to select a committee of interest and sign up. To sign up, please contact someone on the list or contact the Managing Director. If you or one of your colleagues are interested in joining the ORAC Board of Directors, committee work is an excellent way to make yourself known to board members and other industry executives.

The benefits of volunteering on a committee include:

  • Opportunity to meet other industry executives on a one-to-one basis
  • Assist with resolving industry issues that affect yourself and others
  • To improve the overall well-being of the association, and its contractors.
  • To provide a method of lobbying to improve government relations
