What: Pacific Northwest Regional Citizen Corps Conference
Where: Portland State University (PSU), Portland
When: June 1, 2, 3rd (Friday 1pm to Sunday noon)
PSU on-campus hotel (former Red Lion)
We, as a State Citizen Corps Council will host a region wide Citizen
Corps Preparedness Conference on the dates listed above. This event is co-sponsored along with Idaho, Washington, and
Alaska Citizen Corps Councils. With such a wide diversity, we hope to draw on many different ideas, skills, best practices
and leadership traits from our many varied individual councils.
Our Northwest Conference is open to <all> persons
participating in any genre under the Citizen Corps umbrella (CERT, MRC, VIPS, Neighborhood Watch, Fire Corps) and attached
to a registered Council. Oregon (OEM) Citizen Corps will pay lodging for up to two persons from each of Oregon's (40) active,
registered councils. Active is a key word here. Other states may/will arrange attendance in other ways.
is not set up yet to receive reservations but should be on-line shortly. Contact numbers for registration and lodging reservation
will be available soon. There may be a minimal cost for conference registration but that has not been determined yet. While
June seems a long way off, our dates are also a week before Rose Festival kicks off and may present some booking congestion.
We have reserved a block of rooms at a very affordable rate of $79 which is way below metro area per diem.
and co-chairs of the conference are:
Cathy Harrington, City of Gresham (503)618-2482 and <email@example.com>
Joy, Oregon Commission for Voluntary (503)725-5903 and <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Action and Service
If you have any burning suggestions for
sessions, or if you have a best, nominations for a member continually going "above and beyond", best practice to share, or
potential vendor suggestions, please email either of our co-chairs or myself. Both also have regular jobs and may have to
prioritize messages. I have a leave of absence coming up shortly and will defer to both Kathleen and Cathy at that point.
we are in the infancy stages here and still adding to our plans day by day. Be patient .....
