About Oregon Latinos in Local Government

Oregon Latinos in Local Government (OLLG) focuses on the advancement of Latine professionals in local government and the promotion of cultural awareness for local government employees who serve communities with a significant Latine population.

The mission of OLLG is threefold: to support the careers, professional development and leadership of Latines in local government; to inspire all local government professionals in Oregon to improve delivering culturally responsive services to Latine communities; and to increase public participation in local government within the Latine community.

OLLG Board of Directors

The OLLG is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors that are responsible for:

  • Setting policy for the OLLG.
  • Developing and approving revisions to the rules and bylaws.
  • Creating a plan for communications, membership development, programs and special events, and nominations and elections.
  • Approving an annual work plan and budget, included setting membership dues.
  • Providing ongoing guidance to assure the successful fulfillment of the OLLG's goals and objectives.

Upcoming Events
