OCI to Host Association Leadership Roundtable
Next up for Oregon Creative Industries: hosting roundtable discussions with the leadership of various creative economy-related associations, guilds, etc. We have invited leaders from over 25 associations (either Oregon-based or Oregon chapters) to the first meeting this month. We’ve already had 1-on-1 discussions with many of them, but this will be the first group gathering. We’ll host a second roundtable in January for those who can’t make the first one.
This is a logical continuation of the approach that started at the inaugural Cre8Camp in July, which is to involve groups and community members across the multiple disciplines involved in the overall creative economy and then listen to input and feedback to in order to understand how OCI can add value and best serve the professionals, companies and associations that make up Oregon’s creative economy.
The roundtable leadership discussions will be available via live Web and phone conference in order to facilitate 2-way participation from those around the state who can’t attend the Portland-based meetings in-person.
