MMT Fellow Katherine Porras catalogues leadership development in Oregon and SW Washington
A few months ago, we reached out to ask for community input as part of a strategic review of our program related investing conducted by third party GPS Capital. Over 230 partners completed a survey and/or interview, providing valuable perspectives about opportunities and capital needs statewide that support MMT’s vision of a flourishing and equitable Oregon.
Sally Yee set off on a visit of Southern Oregon this summer, to meet and listen to folks in communities far from the Portland headquarters of Meyer Memorial Trust but close to its heart. The Two-Way Street Tour began in Chiloquin, continued on to Klamath Falls before heading to Lakeview and Christmas Valley. Meyer's new director of communications tagged along on the first two visits to watch and learn. Here's Sally's blog about the tail end of the trip.
When Meyer Memorial Trust began exploring the idea from our ideas4Oregon campaign that led to Oregon Unlimited, one of our first steps was to see if any tool or website already existed that we could use because we didn't want to reinvent the wheel.
You’ve been invited to submit a full application to Meyer Memorial Trust, and a program officer has scheduled a site visit. What do you do? Most Executive Directors have been through that process at least once, and have a sense of what to expect. Your board members, however, may not be so confident of their role in the site visit.
