Get Involved!

There are many opportunities for members to volunteer and get involved in OACTA! We encourage you to get the most out of your membership and actively participate!



OACTA Members are encouraged to join an OACTA committee!

OACTA has 11 Substantive Law Committees, each focusing on a different practice area. These substantive law committees provide vital support to OACTA’s members through programs and publications. There is a Chair and Vice Chair for each committee, providing multiple leadership opportunities.

In addition, OACTA has 13 Member Services Committees, each addressing different services for our members. OACTA Member Services Committees provide value to OACTA's members, deliver high quality information and services and enhance members' individual law practices. These committees are non-substantive law-specific. There is a Chair or Co-Chairs for each of these committees.

Members can login and update their committee involvement by completing the online form. You will then be on the list of committee members and will receive communications from the chairs when there is committee activity. If you don’t remember what committees you have signed up for, just login and view your member profile to find out.
