OCRA (Ontario Colleges Retirees’ Association) is currently looking for two retirees to serve two-year appointments on its Board. OCRA is an organization that advocates for its members on issues of concern to community college retirees and to retirees of associations served by the CAAT Pension Plan. Visit the website www.ocraretirees.ca for more information.
As a member of the Board, there will be opportunities to work on projects to provide information and assistance to OCRA members.
To serve on the Board, the retiree must be a paid-up member of OCRA and be interested in learning about the CAAT Pension Plan and college system benefits. A candidate should be able to communicate by email and have basic computer skills. The typical time commitment for a Board member without a portfolio is a few hours most months of the year.
Board meetings are held online via Zoom with an option to phone in to the meeting. General Meetings are open to all OCRA members and usually held once a year at an Ontario community college.
