CPO 7 Steering Committee

The next CPO 7 Steering Committee meeting will be held in our regular location--Fire Station 68--beginning at 7 pm on Thursday, June 25th. All CPO 7 members are invited to attend to help plan our agenda.

CPO 7 is recruiting volunteers for its Steering Committee. Consider taking on a leadership role. It can be a rewarding experience!


CPO 7 Steering Committee officers work together to:

  • Organize and hold CPO meetings which give people the opportunity to exchange information and concerns, and in some cases, develop strategies to address those concerns about our community.
  • Lead efforts that keep community members informed of upcoming land use, transportation, and environmental projects.
  • Provide forums that present both sides of an issue.

Taking on a CPO 7 leadership role gives you the opportunity to:

  • Build connections by engaging with community leaders, elected officials and representatives from agency and district service providers.
  • Grow your leadership skills through trainings and the experience of operating a citizen organization.

At this time the Chair and Vice Chair (Bethany) positions are vacant. Consider getting involved! Email cpo7chair@gmail.com or contact Beth St. Amand at beth.stamand@oregonstate.edu or 503-821-1114. Leadership training is provided.
