Available OCM Volunteer Opportunities

What’s the best way to meet and get to know your fellow Mensans? Volunteer! OCM is run entirely by our members who volunteer their time and talents. Most of our “jobs” are fun and many of them don’t take a huge amount of time.  Other volunteer jobs may involve organizational or other special skills and your accomplishments can be listed on your resume. Here are some opportunities you may want to consider:

  • Board Members (April 2018 – March 2019) – We will be looking for members to serve as President, 1st VP, 2nd VP, Secretary, Treasurer, and Communications Officer. All of these are one-year terms. The time to volunteer is through Wednesday, January 31, 2018. Contact our Nominating Committee Chair, John Olsen, (714) 771-3095.
  • Scholarship Co-Chair – Help coordinate judging of scholarship essays. Contact our Scholarship Chair, Jessica Doss: scholarship@ocmensa.org
  • Speakers Forum Coordinator: We need someone to contact and schedule speakers on interesting topics.
  • Members are wanted from the age groups 18 through 39 to host activities targeted to other members in these age groups. What kinds of activities? Anything you, yourself, would like to do. So, it could be anything from a weekend lunch or movie night to a beach outing or a hike or hang gliding.
  • Activities Committee: Would you like to try your hand at organizing group trips to museums, festivals, art exhibits, tours, or other local activities? If that sounds like fun to you, you would probably be great at it.
  • Do you have a background in PR or media relations? We are looking for a Publicity Chair.
  • We need volunteers to Chair and/or help out with our Regional Gathering (Labor Day Weekend, 2018).

Contact any OCM board member to learn more or to volunteer.
