Meetings are called on an as-needed basis.
CPO 8 Activity
CPO 8 volunteers compiled these background papers on the topics addressed at an Annual Meeting for 2015, held November 10, attended by more than 30 people. County Commissioners Bob Terry and Greg Malinowski participated (agenda here).

CPO 8 also was given a slideshow presentation by Ginny Mapes on her recent book, The Tualatins, which was made possible by a 2015 grant to the Helvetia Community Association from the Cultural Coalition of Washington County.
Your CPO needs you!
CPO 8 leadership has been held by interim leaders for the past year. If no citizen members come forward to take on roles to run CPO 8, the organization will be declared officially inactive in January 2015. Monthly CPO 8 newsletters will continue for the rest of 2014.
CPO leadership is a rewarding experience.
- 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.
