We’re looking for new members to join 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 particularly interested in candidates who will bring different perspectives and connections than we currently have/represent, including the following:

  • Geography: Residents of the outer-eastside (especially Lents or Cully), west side, and/or other cities (besides Portland) in the Metro area,
  • Race, culture, language: People of color and/or speakers of other languages common in East Portland, including Spanish, Vietnamese, or Russian.

If you’re thinking of applying to our board, please join us at one of our many events this summer to see first hand what we’re all about and introduce yourself to us.

Interested candidates should apply by September 18th, 2015.
