Vacant




Join the OCCMA Board

In creating a proposed board for the OCCMA membership’s consideration, the Nominating Committee considers representation of all areas of the state, cities of all sizes, and includes at least one county member and one member serving in an assistant role. The association values increasing the diversity of the board and is always seeking people who want to advance the local government management profession.

Candidates for the OCCMA Board must meet all eligibility requirements in Article 7 of the OCCMA Bylaws: Any active member, as defined in Article 4, Section 2, having at least one-year’s membership in the Oregon City/County Management Association, may make application to the Secretary-Treasurer for a vacant position by the deadline stated in the Notice of Vacancy. In addition, active members applying to serve as President-Elect of the Association shall have a minimum of one year of service on the OCCMA Board. All applications for vacant positions will be reviewed by the Secretary-Treasurer for completeness and eligibility to serve.

Each year, the board solicits applications between June and July to serve on the board. Once the application deadline has passed, the OCCMA Nominating Committee and the OCCMA Board of Directors meet to review applicants and forward a slate of candidates to the membership for election at the Annual Membership Meeting.  

Upcoming Board Meetings

The Board of Directors typically meets five times a year, but may choose to schedule additional meetings as needed. Upcoming meetings are scheduled for:

    • January 31, 2020
    • March 20, 2020 
    • July 10, 2020
    • October 14, 2020
    • November 12, 2020
