Membership Benefits

Benefits of Student, Full, Retired and Honorary Life Members as well as Fellows:

Upon being granted any of the above grades of ORSSA membership, you will enjoy the following benefits:

  1. Receiving a copy of the ORSSA Newsletter. This newsletter appears four times a year with lots of exciting news and information about OR and ORSSA activities, personalities, international news, book reviews, etc. The new-look format of the newsletter not only renders it a professional publication, but it also allows more space for news items!
  2. Receiving a copy of ORiON, the official journal of ORSSA. This journal has appeared annually for the past, almost, twenty years. It is dedicated to our members and you can use it to publish your work, see what fellow ORSSA members do, etc.
  3. Participating in the activities of a local ORSSA chapter. There should be a chapter in your region and the activities of chapters are dependent on the members’ participation! Chapters organise a wide variety of events annually, including colloquiua, short workshops, cocktail parties, dinners and competitions.
  4. Attending the annual national conference at a reduced rate. The annual ORRSA conference is a highlight on the calendar of ORSSA. During the conference members have the opportunity to present papers on their research, and to make new OR-related acquaintances (and to renew old ones).
  5. Being afforded opportunities to network with professional peers. This may be achieved via interaction with the Executive, via the chapters or via the newsletter. Through these interactions members can remain up to speed with developments in the local OR community, share experiences and broaden work-related and personal horizons.
  6. Accessing OR-related job opportunities. The society has in the past (and will in future) assist members in looking for a position in the field of OR. This is done (i) by placing advertisements of job vacancies in the Newsletter, and (ii) by publishing abbrevated CVs of member job seekers in the Newsletter.
