The Portland region has established a reputation for active local engagement. In some areas, neighborhood associations have served as a foundational and valued representative stakeholder groups over the years in navigating tough local, land-use issues. It's a model that other cities come to Portland to learn about, but the neighborhood association is not representative of all residents.

Join us for a facilitated panel discussion about the evolution of neighborhood outreach and the neighborhood association system in Portland. We'll discuss the development and aspirations of neighborhood associations, different neighborhood models in the region and how local outreach may be evolving. Panelists include:

  • Suk Rhee, Director of Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement
  • Joleen Classen, former Neighbors West/Northwest Coalition Executive Director and long-time public involvement practitioner
  • Ethan Seltzer, Portland State University Professor Emeritus, former Director of PSU's Nohad A. Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning and founding director of PSU's Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies

PI Networks are FREE to IAP2 USA members and students. Non-members, please pay $10 at the door in cash or by a check payable to Cascade Chapter of IAP2. This event will be followed by optional no-host happy hour/networking.
