Community Congress VII

Community Congress VII: Best Practices

Wednesday, May 18 from 6 to 9 pm

Clackamas County Board of Commissioners is inviting residents, business owners, elected leaders, service providers and young leaders to help identify and discuss best practices for citizen participation.

The Complete Communities Congress will be held Wednesday, May 18 from 6 to 9 pm at Clackamas Community College – Gregory Forum, 19600 South Molalla Avenue, Oregon City. There is no charge for this event and refreshments will be served.

Attendees will be asked to participate in discussions to identify ways to effectively communicate with the County and how the County can communicate with citizens in a meaningful and timely way. Participants will be asked to describe an experience where citizen participation worked best and to suggest best practices for citizen participation that the county should consider.

The Congress is part of Complete Communities for Clackamas County, a nationally-recognized citizen engagement program that began in 1999 as a response by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) to citizen requests for increased participation in decisions that affect their lives.

Since its inception, the BCC has hosted six Community Congresses, providing an opportunity for hundreds of local officials, citizens, education and business leaders to work together on a range of issues.
