Special Board meeting
April 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm| Free
A special phone meeting of the West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District (WMSWCD) Board of Directors will be held on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm. The purpose of the meeting is to allow for further discussion by the Board on the Board’s position regarding proposed new bylaws for the Oregon Association of Conservation Districts (OACD), an Oregon non-profit corporation that advances the interests of soil and water conservation districts for the conservation and wise use of Oregon’s natural resources through leadership, information, and state representation. WMSWCD is a member of the OACD.
At its March 12, 2019 Board meeting, the WMSWCD Board voted to cast a “no” vote against the proposed new OACD bylaws citing a need for further discussion and understanding about the revisions. At present, the OACD bylaw revisions stand to be voted on by OACD members at the upcoming OACD Board Meeting, April 9th, in Sunriver. Since the Board’s March 12, 2019 meeting, new information and possible changes to the proposed OACD bylaw revisions has surfaced and the Board wants to consider this information and revisit its March 12, 2019 decision to vote against the proposed OACD bylaw revisions. Proposed revised bylaws can be found at: https://wmswcd.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/OACD-Proposed-Revised-Bylaws_2019.pdf
The Meeting starts at 6:00 p.m., and can be accessed by the public at the WMSWCD offices – 2701 NW Vaughn Street, Suite 450, Portland, Oregon.
