Similar to last year, the CIC is conducting a summer-fall recruitment campaign at meetings and events throughout Multnomah County. At the events and meetings we table to talk to people about what the county does and opportunities to volunteer. This Thursday, June 16th, we will be tabling at the NW 23rd Portland Farmers' Market.

Last year's campaign was very successful as we attended more than 10 events, had more than 100 people fill out applications to volunteer, and ultimately recruited new CIC and CBAC members. Equally important was the educational opportunity we had to talk to citizens about who the county is and what it does!
