President's Council

The primary purpose of President's Council is to welcome, inform and retain new and renewing Portland Business Alliance members so they can maximize their membership. Council members also solicit valuable feedback from members that helps the Alliance in its programming efforts.

Council members mentor new Alliance members, check-in with members on a regular basis and greet new members at Alliance events. You can spot a President's Council member at Alliance events - they have a blue or red ribbon on their name tag.

President's Council participation requirements: 
  • You must be an Alliance member for at least six months and be a regular attendee of Alliance events
  • You must attend all Alliance regular networking events at least once.
  • Time commitment averages two to three hours/month
  • Members are encouraged to attend 75 percent of the monthly meetings
Benefits of President's Council include relationship building opportunities, complimentary admittance at events at which you are greeting members, exposure for your business - just to name a few. If you are interested, please contact Alliance Retention Specialist Dennis Van Laningham by email or call 503.552.6748.
