2020 has been an interesting and some might say, unprecedented year.  Like many of you, AOR has had to be nimble and adjust to these uncertain times. Though our in-person events were cancelled in the first half of the year, we look forward to gathering in person at our Sustainable Oregon 2020 Conference which we have rescheduled for October 5th and 6th at the Double Tree Hotel in Portland.

Traditionally, the Conference has served as the time and place of our annual members meeting, and where we host our Board elections. After reviewing several options, the Board has made the decision to hold our annual meeting virtually prior to the conference as they believe it is the best option to meet the spirit and intent of our bylaws and to remain transparent with our members.

Everyone is invited to attend, though registration is required. We will hear from all board candidates, and take nominations from the floor. At the conclusion of the meeting, a link will be made available for voting members to cast their vote. Results from the election will be announced the following day.

During the meeting, the Board will provide updates since our last conference.
