2016-17 Professional Development Meetings & Announcements


September 15, 2016 Professional Development Meeting
Topic: Creating Solar Energy Together – One Locale Company’s Remarkable Story of Growth and the Importance of the Supply Chain
Presenter: Ocean Yuan





ISM Willamette Valley Members,

During our July board of directors meeting we had a discussion about the day of the week our Professional Development programs take place.  As most of you are aware we have always held meetings on the second Tuesday of the month.  

Today, the board voted in favor of and supports a change that would move our monthly meetings to Thursday evenings going forward.  The proposed calendar for meetings in 2016/17 is as follows:

  • Thursday, September 15, 2016                  (**note: all meetings will begin at 5:30pm)
  • Thursday, October 13, 2016        
  • Thursday, November 10, 2016
  • NO MEETING IN DECEMBER or JANUARY
  • Thursday, February 9, 2017
  • Thursday, March 9, 2017
  • Thursday, April 13, 2017
  • Thursday, May 11, 2017

At this point, we are reaching out to our membership primarily to inform you of this upcoming change.  However, we are also interested in any feedback that you care to provide about the proposed change.  I can be reached via email at andremor@uoregon.edu or by phone at 541 346-4299.

Best Regards and Happy Summer,
Andre Moran, President, ISM Willamette Valley
