Advocacy in Oregon

Economic Development in Oregon is a team sport. As we work together to help grow our communities and our economy, advocating for smart, strong policies to create a healthy business environment is a piece of this.

As Economic Development professionals we have a unique opportunity to support both private business and our communities. We see our role as working to inform both on how economies, business and government can all work together to create the best possible outcomes. It is the goal of all of us to help build the economic strength and sustainability of our communities, where our youth can live, work and prosper.
