Through inspired leadership, main street programs throughout Oregon are helping to sustain and enhance the vitality of traditional commercial districts. The 2023 Oregon Main Street Conference is a great way to look at the “big picture” about the importance of main street districts to the health and well-being of local communities – physically, economically and socially.
The conference theme this year is Idea to Implementation, which reflects the innovation happening in our Oregon Main Street organizations to think creatively about the issues and opportunities impacting their communities and then developing concrete programs and activities to bring about meaningful change.
Sessions will cover a variety of topics for both beginners and those with experience. The format includes keynotes, interactive workshops and networking time.
Who Should Attend:
Staff and volunteers of organizations focusing on downtown historic preservation and economic development, downtown business and property owners, government leaders, chamber of commerce professionals and volunteers, and others with an interest in the future of downtown will benefit from attending this conference.
