The Association is made up of community members just like you, and overseen by a Board of Directors composed of volunteers.
The Board is basically the nerve centre of the Community Association. It is the primary point of contact between the community and other individuals, groups, networks and stakeholders across the city. It is also the primary organizing group for activates within and pursued by the community. Presently it consists of:
- President – Katia Zubkova (contact)
- Vice President - Volunteer Needed
- Treasurer – Nick Christou (contact)
- Media Director/Public Relations – Tanja Neuvonen-Del Bosco (contact)
- Focuses on correspondence and communications. In the near term would focus on getting the community newsletter running again.
- Community Coordinator – Volunteer Needed (contact)
- Coordinates with the Volunteers at Large to stay on top of developments on individual streets and organize activities beyond basic flyer deliveries.
- Secretary – Uyen Vo (contact)
- Liaison Officer – Volunteer Needed
- The first point of contact with the Corporation of the City of Ottawa and the City Councillor on matters not involving the President.
- Sports and Recreation – Volunteer Needed
If you are interested in filling any of the open positions, please contact the President. Board positions are elected at our Annual General Meeting and require a 1 or 2 year commitment of average of 1 hour of work a week.
The OCPCA is also supported by a large and dedicated group of “Volunteers at Large” who reside throughout the community and provide general support. Volunteers also assist with individual initiatives as well. The Association thanks all of the community’s volunteers.
We are always looking for volunteers. Please contact the community coordinator to get involved.
