In coordination with the OAR Strategic Vision (adopted in 2019), and following feedback from members across the state last year, a President’s Advisory Group (PAG) was organized at the beginning of 2020 to examine how OAR might be able to limit its fiduciary liabilities by reducing the size of the Board of Directors to a more appropriate size, while also ensuring equitable local board representation. The PAG also weighed other proposals which they felt could strengthen the association’s governance.

The below worksheet outlines each of the proposals adopted by the Board of Directors in March 2020, which is now recommended to the complete membership for approval. Please note, the first three proposals (one proposal per page) originated from the Life Membership Committee regarding a more streamlined process for weighing and approving Life Membership applications.

If you have any questions or feedback, OAR and the PAG will work to answer them and provide as much transparent feedback is possible.
