OPAF & The First Clinics, serving as the philanthropic arm of the US Orthotic & Prosthetic Community has begun its annual search for individuals who would like to participate within the O & P community through service on the OPAF Board of Directors. Board members serve a one or two year term and are required to attend at least one of the two face to face or virtual board meetings held normally in conjunction with The AOPA National Assembly and The Academy Annual Meeting and Scientific Symposium. Additionally, directors are expected to be vitally involved in the ongoing work of OPAF & First Clinics with adaptive recreation and to take an active role with all of our fundraising efforts. With a change in focus during the pandemic the OPAF Board is working to ensure that OPAF’s mission continues far into the future.
We are a self-nominating and volunteer board, indicating both your willingness and enthusiasm to serve and currently have 6 seats available for filling on the Board.

Life-changing experiences are provided through individual participation and training, education of healthcare professionals, and raising public awareness on a national level.
