The Benefits of Volunteering

Through volunteering, you meet new people, build new networks, and put your unique skills and personal brand to work.

It's also an opportunity to give back to a community that matters to you. There are many ways to volunteer. You can join a local board, work on an OREA committee, or help an organization that is not related to the profession.

To learn more about volunteering opportunities at OREA, look for our Call for Volunteers in January each year. To volunteer at your local association, contact them directly
