The Ottawa Orchid Society (OOS) is managed by a Board of Directors, who are chosen
in accordance with the Society’s formal Constitution. The President, Vice-president,
Secretary and Treasurer are elected by the general membership through elections held
every 2 years. The other members of the board are appointed by the elected members,
and these individuals change from time to time depending on their capability and
willingness to serve.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the board, please review the Society
constitution and the job description for the position you are interested in. The
Society is always looking for volunteers in various capacities, particularly for
the Annual Show, and volunteering is a great way to become known and recognized.
As with any activity, the more you put into it the more you get out of it.
We have also put together a short history of the founding of the Ottawa Orchid Society
which gives a good summary of how we got started.
