September Message from Board Chair Karen Vineyard

“In my August column I wrote about what a challenging year this has been – a global pandemic, nationwide social unrest, a deep economic recession. And now, unimaginably, our beloved state has faced yet another crisis of historic proportions: September wildfires that devastated communities; destroying homes, businesses, and livelihoods.”

August Message from Board Chair Karen Vineyard

August marked my eighth month as your Oregon Business & Industry chair.
