Your CPO needs you!

CPO 8 leadership is not currently formally elected, but interim volunteers are organizing the group. CPO 8 members need to take on official roles to run CPO 8 by July 2016 for the organization to remain active for the rest of the year. 

CPO leadership is a rewarding experience.

CPO leaders:

  • Organize and hold CPO meetings which give people the opportunity to exhange information and concerns, and in some cases develop strategies to address those concerns about their community.
  • Lead efforts to keep community members informed of upcoming land use, transportation, and environmental projects.
  • Provide forums that present both sides of an issue.
  • Build connections by engaging with community leaders, elected officials, and representatives from agency and district service providers.
  • Are given the opportunity to build leadership skills through trainings and the experience of operating a citizen organization.
