Volunteering for The Scottish Society of Ottawa

Join our great volunteer team & share the experience; help out the SSO; build the Scottish community and make new friends and contacts!

The annual Hogman-eh! party is just one of the many exciting events and projects we look forward to sharing with Ottawa residents and beyond. We think there’s an appetite for a number of Scottish themed events, from Burns suppers to discussions of current affairs, from gathering to watch sporting events to Scottish dance and music.

2019 is an election year for the SSO. We need a great team of leaders and volunteers to work together to build the organization, folks to plan and execute Hogman-eh! (2019 will be our 8th and hopefully biggest and best!), our Gala Burns Supper, a festival of Scottish-themed events running through January for our 2nd Annual OttScot Festival, and to coordinate our National Great Canadian Kilt Skate. We’re also looking for a good communicator with an upbeat attitude to coordinate our volunteers.

Volunteer terms run from May 2019 to April 2021.

Current vacancies include:

  • Grand Committee positions:

  • Communications Director

  • Events Director

  • OttScot Festival Director

  • National Great Canadian Kilt Skate Director

  • Committee members for Hogman-eh!, the Gala Burns Supper and OttScot Festival
