How involved must I be?pic_73

How involved you want to get, is up to you. The only requirement of members is that they pay an annual membership due.


I don’t live in the Okanagan – can I still become part of OkaZHI?

Yes! While most OkaZHI members live in the Okanagan, it is not a membership requirement. If you support the mission of the organization, you can join! If you want to be a more active member and attend regular planning meetings, you can also participate by telephone or Skype.


I don’t work in the healthcare sector – can I still become part of OkaZHI?

Yes! While most OkaZHI members either practice or teach in the health sector, the organization needs a wide range of volunteer skills, including but not limited to the areas of fundraising, communications, and non-profit management and administration. There is a great deal of behind the scenes work which goes on to facilitate our mission and contributions, experience and skills of each member are valued.
