VERY LAST day to get the early bird registration for the 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit

Last chance to get the very best rate for the 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit on a Culture of Board Engagement!

This year it is all about the board. Will you be bored? No way! The 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit<https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx> digs deeply into the theory and practice of great boards- what a good board looks like, how every board needs to reflect the individual purpose and community it serves, and how organizations can build and sustain a strong board team. Strong board leadership is vital to the ability of an organization to meet its mission.
