About Us

ORRA was established in 2005, with 35 members. In 2013, ORRA had 119 members. ORRA’s volunteer leaders and teams are the driving force behind this success. Together with our members, we remain committed to advancing the professional practice of compensation, benefits and total rewards.

ORRA is a proud member of WorldatWork’s Local Network, and ORRA members have access to WorldatWork certification to advance their careers.  In 2009, ORRA was the inaugural winner of the WorldatWork Local Association of the Year Award.
