There are pockets in every city where there is a true sense of community. A mix of generations and cultures. Where neighbours know each other. Where families raise children. Where there are neighbourhood schools, parks, grocery stores and eateries. And where a community centre is a hub of activity. Oakridge is one such community. And the Oakridge Community Centre is one of the community’s many treasures. The mission of the Oakridge Community Association remains true to its roots—to provide a recreational and social setting for community activities and to provide civic representation and support for community issues.
The Oakridge Community Association is a not-for-profit organization. Revenues go directly back to the Association, and, in turn, provide a venue for programs and events. The Oakridge Community Association is headed by a volunteer board of directors, full-time and part-time staff and many event and program volunteers. Governance is provided by the Board, and day-to-day operations and facility administration, by the general manager. To operate, the Oakridge Community Association relies on revenues from facility rentals and membership fees. A variety of grants provide capital for facility maintenance and improvement.
The Board of Directors meet monthly with the exception of July and August, and in September, for the Annual General Meeting. All meetings are open to the public. In accordance with the Oakridge Community Association bylaws, to participate in meeting discussion, individuals must have current community membership or be invited to do so by the Association president.
