OCI Board Members Appear on Panel for “The Portlandia Effect”
Two members of OCI’s Board of Directors–Jerry Ketel and David Cress–will form half of the expert panel at Portland Ad Federation’s event called “The Portlandia Effect: Portland’s Alternative Lifestyles Growing our Economy” on March 11th. Panelists at the event (which also includes Susan Bladholm of Greenlight Greater Portland and Roy Kaufman of the City of Portland) will discuss how the business community outside of Oregon responds to our region’s culture.
OCI’s core mission is to foster and facilitate growth for the regional creative economy and this topic is key to it: how to bring more revenue to our creative industries providers from outside the region.
