Save the Date! January 30th is BBPDX’s Regional Transportation Event

This month’s call to action comes from our Chief Collaboration Officer Ashley Henry who reflects on what she’s learned about business leadership addressing transportation challenges in other cities.

On January 30, members can attend our first event of 2018 with regional leaders like Multnomah County Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson, CH2M’s Catherine Ciarlo, former Washington Secretary of Transportation Lynn Peterson, and ZGF Architects’ Nolan Lienhart. During the panel moderated by Oregon Humanities’ director Adam Davis, we’ll explore why it’s critical for businesses to engage in our region’s transportation challenges and how BBPDX members can make a difference.

Over the past year, we’ve traveled with delegations of Portlanders to Los Angeles and Denver to learn about how diverse stakeholder groups collaborated to secure voter support for multi-billion dollar investments in regional transit and congestion relief. We learned about inspiring partnerships like the one from the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce that invited in regional environmentalists to work in the Chamber office on a shared vision.

Big challenges call for bold visions and solution-oriented collaborations. We look forward to seeing you on January 30 and exploring how we can work together to create a more efficient and equitable transportation system for Portland.

We’ll gather at Urbanite, 1005 SE Grand, from 5:30–8 p.m. on January 30.

Many thanks to our January 30 event sponsors:
