HERITAGE CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHT: NONPROFIT BOARD WORKSHOP AND REGISTRATION DEAL

If you are new to being on a nonprofit board or even if you are a long time board member and are looking to refresh your knowledge on board roles and responsibilities to recruit new board members, consider attending the pre-conference workshop, A Strong Board = A Strong Organization, on April 11 in Bend. The goal of this workshop is to familiarize board members with board roles and responsibilities so they can support their organization's goals to the best of their abilities. Understanding roles and responsibilities will also help boards set expectations when recruiting new board members. This workshop will begin with a presentation by Susan Bower, Assistant Attorney General in the Charitable Activities Section at the Oregon Attorney General's Office and a past Chair of the Nonprofit Organizations Law Section of the Oregon State Bar. Susan will discuss the non-profit board member's legal duties and responsibilities. The second half of the workshop will be conducted by the Center for Nonprofit Stewardship who will provide tools and resources to help build a better board.

This workshop occurs on the first day of the Oregon Heritage Conference April 11-13 in Bend. In order to encourage more board members to attend, we have a "buy one registration, get one ½ off for a board member" deal going on. To make use of this deal, contact Kuri Gill at kuri.gill at oregon.gov<mailto:kuri.gill at oregon.gov> or 503-986-0685 to get the code. For more information about the conference or to register visit http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx.

NAO SURVEY REQUEST: ARE YOU READY FOR A DISASTER?

The Pacific Northwest, Oregon, and Portland face a number of natural hazards that can create disasters for our communities. These hazards include both common events such as, storms and flooding, as well as more rare events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The region's nonprofit organizations are critical in supporting many communities today, and this need will continue after any disaster event.

To learn more about the resilience of the nonprofit sector, we are surveying nonprofit organizations to understand the concerns, resources, and actions that they have taken to prepare for disasters. The information collected should provide more general information regarding the state of nonprofit organizations' disaster preparedness and the challenges they encounter in doing so. Such information will also help inform The Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission's task of generating policy recommendations in the development of the Community Resilience Legislation, Senate Bill 850.

It will take you approximately 15 - 20 minutes to respond to these questions. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and confidential. Responses to this survey will be kept confidential and we will not share individual responses with anyone. When we report on findings, we will aggregate answers, and identifiers will be removed.

This research is being conducted by Dr. Grace (Chikoto) Schultz, Paul Manson, and Andrew Russo at Portland State University, in cooperation with City Club of Portland's Earthquake Report Advocacy Committee (CCERAC) and the Nonprofit Association of Oregon (NAO). If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to contact Dr. (Chikoto) Schultz at (503) 725-5405 or graceschultz at pdx.edu<mailto:graceschultz at pdx.edu>. We welcome all nonprofit leaders to take the survey, so please share the link:

WERE YOU IMPACTED BY A WILDFIRE IN 2017? TRAVEL OREGON WANTS TO KNOW

In 2017, Oregon experienced one of its most severe wildfire seasons in years. Residents and businesses were affected throughout the state and the impacts on Oregon's tourism industry were widespread.

In an effort to assist in recovery and resiliency efforts for our partners following wildfires, Travel Oregon wants to know more about the  impacts the wildfires had on Oregon's businesses throughout the state. Once we establish a baseline for the impact these fires caused, we will be better armed to report on losses that fire leaves in its wake. And, we want to provide you with a potential resource to help you, should you need to request wildfire-related grants or FEMA funds.  And that's why we need to hear<https://t.e2ma.net/click/1whny/x162xs/5b0aaj> from you.

With that in mind, we are surveying<https://t.e2ma.net/click/1whny/x162xs/l40aaj> businesses and organizations throughout the state who were impacted during the 2017 wildfire season.  Although not all businesses were directly impacted by fires, many were impacted across the state due to smoke, road closures and canceled events. We know many businesses closed and events were canceled and we need to know if your business was impacted in any way.

For instance, is your business located in a town on the Cycle Oregon route? You were likely impacted. Is your business located in Southern Oregon? Due to the Chetco-Bar fire, you were likely impacted. Do visitors need to access your location via I-84? Due to the closure of the highway from the Eagle Creek fire, you were likely impacted. Do you own a business in Sisters? Due to the Milli Fire, the Folk Festival was canceled and you were likely impacted.

The survey<https://t.e2ma.net/click/1whny/x162xs/1w1aaj> is available until March 16. If you operate a travel-related business or organization in Oregon, be sure to take the survey<https://t.e2ma.net/click/1whny/x162xs/hp2aaj>.
The results of the study will be compiled by Dean Runyan Associates and Destination Analysts. Results will be shared with the industry at the conclusion of the study, which is expected to be April 30, 2018.

If you have questions, contact Ladan at TravelOregon.com<mailto:Ladan at TravelOregon.com?subject=Wildfire%20Survey>.
