OACP needs your help!

You are already getting great benefits from your OACP membership, like access to our monthly educational meetings, a professional listing on our website, and networking opportunities with our professional community. It takes a lot of folks volunteering their time to make those things happen. If you’d like to be one of those people, please consider joining one of the following OACP committees which are actively seeking volunteers.

Annual Training Committee.

This committee is tasked with putting on our annual OACP May Training (May 17, 2019). Volunteers will help select the speaker(s), plan the conference, create marketing materials, work with potential vendors and sponsors, and host the speakers while they are in town. Seeking both committee members and a non-Board Member Chair. Please contact Angie Russo to sign up or learn more.

Education Committee.

This committee puts on our monthly educational meetings on topics relevant to collaborative practitioners, bringing in speakers from our local collaborative community and beyond. Beginning in August of 2018, these meetings are available to members across the state in streaming webinar format. Interested in helping? Contact Lee Hamilton.

Public Awareness Committee.

Needs chair (Angie Russo is Board liaison). What good is all that collaborative training if you don’t have any collaborative cases? The OACP Public Awareness committee is tasked with educating the public about the collaborative process through education, outreach, and marketing. The committee is currently focused on developing OACP’s Divorce Options
Workshop Program, which will provide OACP members opportunities to market their skills directly to potential clients, via educational presentations. Contact Angie Russo to sign up.

Statewide Outreach.

This committee is dedicated to bringing the benefits of OACP membership to practitioners outside of the Portland Metro area. The committee is looking for volunteers and feedback from practitioners from around the state on what the OACP can do to better support their “non-Portland” collaborative communities. Contact Thomas Johnson to sign up.
