Conference Committee

The Conference Committee develops a variety of aspects of the annual conference including sessions, tours and activities, and the silent auction. The group starts meeting in early 2021 and continues meeting through summer leading up to our Conference in October. Committee members spend a few hours in between each meeting working on their tasks.

Events Committee

Formerly the Education Committee, the events committee helps us to grow our recycling education programs throughout the state by sharing resources, compiling information, and promoting recycling through events around the state. The group meets monthly, or more if needed, with the expectation that committee members will do 5-10 hours of work between meetings to support projects.

Legislative Committee

AOR’s legislative committee provides a forum for members to discuss materials management-related legislation and provide feedback and make recommendations to the AOR Board to support, protest or remain neutral on bills introduced to the Oregon Legislature. The group includes 11 members that represent the overall demographics of AOR’s members.  The committee charter can be found here.

Marketing Committee

AOR is forming a new marketing committee that will meet monthly to create a plan to promote and market AOR as an organization, it's mission, vision, and events. We all know what an innovative organization AOR is. This committee will design a plan to let the rest of the world know. Creative thinkers apply within.

Membership Committee

The Membership Committee helps develop and implement AOR’s member recruitment and retention strategy. The group meets prior to AOR events to identify organizations and individuals that would benefit from attending the event. Our two tasks are to: A) recruit potential members to attend AOR events and B) remind former members that their membership has expired.
