Meet our new board members
We bring Oregonians together to safeguard the water, air and land we all love and share.
Oregon Environmental Council is governed by a volunteer board of directors who each serve for two-year terms. Our current and former board members include a diverse community of stakeholders, from professionals, academics and experts, providing a range of expertise from conservation, to climate, to finance, and forestry.
This spring, we are pleased to introduce two new board members, volunteering their time to protect what we love here in Oregon.

She advises the elected Chair on operational and countywide decisions including the creation of the executive budget; serves as primary liaison between county departments and policy makers; ensures efficient, effective and transparent use of public resources for the public good; and works closely with the Multnomah County Chair and Board of Commissioners to operationalize board policy and initiatives.
