EMERGING PROFESSIONALS OF PORTLAND (EPOP) LEADERSHIP COMMMITTEE
Programming and events for Emerging Professionals of Portland (EPOP) are designed in collaboration by a volunteer-led leadership committee. This group consists of up to 12 emerging professionals with interests in civic engagement, coordinating and supporting events, and marketing.
Leadership committee applications are now open, as of Jan. 11, 2021.
To be considered, your employer or business must be a current member of the Portland Business Alliance in good standing.
What does it mean to be a committee member?
EPOP committee members play an integral role in determining the events and overall function of the program. The committee gathers each month for regular meetings. Committee members are expected to volunteer between three and six hours each month, depending on the month and level of activities each board member engages in.
How are committee members selected?
The current committee will review applications with staff to select new committee members. As we rebuild new networking programs for 2021, we are hoping to expand our committee with many new volunteers. We encourage all those interested to apply!
