OCCMA relies on a combination of standing and ad hoc committees made up of local government managers to accomplish our goals and strategic aims for the year. OCCMA usually solicits volunteers for committees in the fall and makes appointments in early November. Active OCCMA members may participate on committees (described below).
If you are an OCCMA member and interested in joining a committee, please send the application form by email to Megan George at email@example.com. Please contact Megan George with any questions about OCCMA committees.
