The Network and our partners offer regular technical and organizational development training and convenings for councils statewide. These include the following:
Gathering of Councils & Districts: The "Gathering" as it's called has brought together councils, districts, and their partners from around the state for several days of learning and networking. In 2016, this event was replaced with the Fall Networking Event on October 19-20. The Gathering will resume on even-numbered years in the Spring of 2018.
CONNECT Technical Training: CONNECT is an annual training for conservation professionals at conservation districts and watershed councils around the state. CONNECT is planned in partnership with the Oregon Conservation Education & Assistance Network (OCEAN). CONNECT 2017 will be May 2-4 in Pendleton and will be a larger conference than normal. Visit OCEAN's website for details and archives from past years.
Regional Meetings: The Network, in cooperation with our partners, periodically sponsors meetings that focus on current events and issues of regional concern. If you want a regional meeting in your area, let's talk! View details from past meetings.
