Our Board Meetings take place at least once a month, generally on the first Monday of the month. Occasionally special sessions are also called to resolve additional items or unforeseen events. All meetings are open to the public, with the exception of occasional Executive Sessions.
Board meetings cover the general business of East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, while also convening to decide the next steps the District will take in overall operations or within specific programs. Board meetings often follow special committee meetings, which are detailed in the Committees page.
The District office is ADA accessible, and served by bus lines #44, #72 and #6. For Americans with Disabilities Act accommodations, or for translation services, call (503) 222-7645 no later than 48 hours prior to a meeting date.
All members of the Board are expected to attend each meeting, as well as our Executive Director and management team. Non-managerial staff may also attend certain meetings, in order to present to the Board or speak on certain agenda items.
