Committee

OSA is managed by its national governing body with elected positions of a President, a Vice President, a Secretary and a Treasurer. They appoint Editor(s) who takes care of the news of the organization. The Chapters are administered by locally elected officials. The national Governing Body and the Presidents of the Chapters form the OSA Executive Council, which acts as a policy-making body.

Various OSA committees constitute the real force in OSA. Committee activities are planned for effective contribution of the organization to its members and its roots. OSA cannot sustain without their volunteering support. The committee members are appointed by OSA President and elected officials to look after specific OSA programs and activities of their interest and expertise.

We encourage our members to come forward, volunteer, support and help us in building this organization stronger and bigger. Please volunteer to be a member of any of the following committees if you have knowledge, skills, interest, ideas and expertise to make a lasting positive contribution. Yes, together we can make a strong and stable OSA!
