We’re looking for new members for our Board of Directors!
Depave is led by a hard-working volunteer Board Members, and is looking to add a few more. Do you want to use your skills, connections, and ideas to help the organization thrive and evolve in the coming years?
This is a working board, with members doing much of the core work of the organization, and only limited support from one staff member. In order to advance our mission (education, policy work and projects, all “to overcome the social and environmental impacts of pavement”) and to sustain our organization, we need more help!
This year, we are specifically recruiting for people who will bring different perspectives and connections than we currently have/represent., e.g.
- Geography: West side of Portland, outer-eastside, and/or suburbs,
- Race/ethnicity: People of color and/or immigrant populations,
- Age: outside the 29-45 age range, and/or
- Professional connections: Engineering, finance, law, planning, and/or health.
Interested candidates should apply by October 24th.
We’ve teamed up with PechaKucha Portland and the American Society of Landscape Architects for Portland Design Week happening October 4-11, for the return of our Community + Design Showcase, powered by PechaKucha. We’re celebrating local efforts to integrate design and community by hosting a series PechaKucha style presentations across the spectrum of design disciplines. What is PechaKucha? It’s the art of concise presentations. A pechakucha presentation is 20 images that advance automatically every 20 seconds for a fast-paced, fun, presentation. It is about the project and the delivery!
