Does your heritage organization have a board handbook?

The most recent Oregon Heritage Exchange post discusses the importance of a board handbook in orienting new board members and examples of what documents to include in a handbook. It gives new board members the tools to be able to fulfill their duties as a board member which ultimately benefits the organization. This is one of many things that will discussed at the Oregon Heritage Summit<https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx> in April (registration is now open!). Learn more by visiting the Oregon Heritage Exchange<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2019/02/28/does-your-heritage-organization-have-a-board-handbook/>.

Portland Rose Festival designated an Oregon Heritage Tradition

The Portland Rose Festival, a long-standing Portland event, marks its upcoming 112th year with an Oregon Heritage Tradition designation by the Oregon Heritage Commission. Other Oregon Heritage Traditions include the Oregon State Fair, Medford's Pear Blossom Festival, the Pendleton Round-Up, and the Woodburn Fiesta Mexicana.

The Portland Rose Festival can trace its roots back to a speech given by Portland Mayor Harry Lane at the 1905 Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition, which included a call for a festival of roses. Two years later, in 1907, the first Portland Rose Festival was held with the intention of putting Portland on the map and branding it as the 'summer capital of the world.' It included the novelty of an electric parade with illuminated floats that allowed Portland to showcase its innovation as one of the first cities in the world to have an electrically propelled trolley system. A year later, in 1908, a nonprofit formed to lead the festival planning and turn it into an annual event.

Over the years the Festival's events have changed and expanded with the times, but the parades associated with the Portland Rose Festival have remained at the center of the event. "The Festival's venerable centerpiece, the Grand floral Parade, is more than fancy floats and high-stepping bands; it's lineup is layered with theatrical and cultural story-telling that reflects how a community can honor diversity and celebrate unity at the same time," said Teri Bowles-Atherton, Rose Festival Foundation President. "The Rose Festival offers a familiar place for multi-generations to make memories while celebrating side-by-side."

The Portland Rose Festival wouldn't be possible without countless volunteer hours from the over 3,600 volunteers who organize and run events, including board members who give thousands of hours of their time in leadership and planning. The event adds to the heritage tourism impact in Oregon and is estimated to generate $65 million in economic impact for the Portland-Metro region.

The Portland Rose Festival will be held May 24- June 9, with additional activities extending in to July and August. More information can be found at: http://www.rosefestival.org/

An Oregon Heritage Tradition must have been in continuous operation for more than 50 years, demonstrate a public profile and reputation that distinguishes it from more routine events, and add to the livability and identity of the state. A list of Tradition designations is available at http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/pages/oht.aspx . The Oregon Heritage Commission coordinates efforts to solve statewide heritage issues through grants, education, and advocacy, and also promotes heritage tourism efforts.

Check out this interview about artifacts coming back to the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde

The KLCC<https://www.klcc.org/> public radio station is doing a series on Native Oregon Voices<https://www.klcc.org/term/native-oregon-voices>. Yesterday they did an installment of this series on Native Oregon Artifacts Coming Home<https://www.klcc.org/post/native-oregon-artifacts-coming-home>. It is an interesting listen/read to learn about artifacts coming back to the tribes from the perspective of The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. It also includes information on state laws related to archaeology from one of our Oregon State Historic Preservation Office archaeologists, John Pouley. Check it out here<https://www.klcc.org/post/native-oregon-artifacts-coming-home>.

Is the culture of your organization truly supporting your Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) goals?
Event details: March 21 in Medford, Oregon
How do you find out what the culture of your organization is? When we are in it, we "know it" because we live it, but being objectively aware of our organization's culture -and its impact- can be a little trickier. Sometimes there is a disconnect between what we set out to do and what gets in the way to achieving it. Looking at what creates these gaps will help us stay on track. Even with a good outline of steps, we may be unaware of other forces at play. Come discover what some of those may be!
