Emerging Leaders Alumni Program Launches

Eight years after starting, we realize it’s time to celebrate the nearly 50 people who’ve been a part of our Emerging Leaders Board, a diverse, powerful network of young professionals who collectively contribute to our work, both while serving on the board and after.

This April, we officially launched our Emerging Leaders Board (ELB) Alumni Program with a happy hour at Migration Brewing in Northeast Portland. Board members from 2010 through today gathered to reminisce, share notes, and get to know new members.

Members of Oregon Environmental Council’s Emerging Leaders Board serve 18-month terms, with many staying for two rounds and up to three years, after which they become alumni.

Our new Alumni Program is designed to support past and present members, helping them connect with and benefit from professional leadership opportunities and ways individuals can assist in amplifying our team’s efforts. This could mean serving as ambassadors for the organization, joining event committees, and more.

Our goal is to create deeper integration between the ELB and our program work, providing opportunities for these leaders to apply their skills and expertise on advocating for climate protection, healthy air, and clean and plentiful water in Oregon.

Thank you to all who joined us for this inaugural event. Stay tuned for more fun events and opportunities to meet the current Emerging Leaders Board team!

The Clean Fuels Program: David vs. Goliath

Sometimes David really does triumph over Goliath. Today, the Oregon Clean Fuels Program cleared its final legislative hurdle, clearing the way for meaningful carbon pollution reductions from transportation fuels. The Clean Fuels Program will guarantee 7 million metric tons of carbon pollution stay out of our air, equivalent to 37,500 rail cars of coal. Fully implementing this program is a critical step towards meeting Oregon’s climate goals. The Oregon E
