Short Description of Activity
COCN has not met since summer due to staff changes…..getting reacquainted with the previous members as well as the new members of OLCV. Everyone gave updates of what each agency has been doing the past several months…specific projects and advocacy concerns. Total of 11 partners at this meeting with 2 from the Bitterbrush broads.
Overall a good meeting. OLCV is changing their format as far as how things worked when Nikki was there. Plan is to still support local interests, but the local rep’s primary job is recruitment of volunteers. The Coalition Director and Executive Director will run the meetings and listened to get up to speed with concerns/ issues locally everyone is working on. They plan on still supporting our efforts, and keep us up to speed with legislation in Salem. More one on one meetings to follow. We will now be back on meeting again on a regular bi-monthly meetings.
