The Okanagan College Alumni Association (OCAA) is a non-profit organization that celebrates alumni by creating connections and opportunities.
The OCAA was founded in 1988. Since then, the goal of the Association has been to connect alumni with each other and with the College, while supporting the College's mission statement of transforming lives and communities.
Since early inception, the Association has engaged in extensive fundraising activities on behalf of the College; however, in January 2020 the Association transferred from the Advancement department to the College Relations department, and the fundraising activities remain under Advancement.
Empowering your future.
