Our Mission

Our mission is to support and strengthen an effective, efficient public sector through the concepts and strategies of risk management.

Thank you to the Oregon School Safety Officers Association for its continued partnership.








Announcements from the Board of Directors

After careful consideration, OR-PRIMA’s leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Fall Conference in Sunriver.  The wellbeing of our members and partners are our first priority.  In light of ongoing health and safety concerns across our state as a result of the ongoing pandemic, in addition to travel restrictions and spending freezes, we find it irresponsible to move forward with an in-person conference this year. 

It is important to us that we continue to provide you with tools that add value to your career, and your organization.  Therefore, this summer we are excited to launch our new virtual education sessions!  There has been a concerted effort to offer sessions that will help fill the risk certification program requirements.

We could not do all of this without our sponsors!  Once again, they are generously supporting us so that we may offer free webinars to you this summer.  However, it is our goal to continue to provide these webinar events to you year-round!

Thank you very much for your continued support!  We look forward to seeing you next April for the Spring session at The Oregon Garden.  Don’t forget to mark your calendars, as we’ll be back in Salishan in the Fall of 2021.  We’ll be moving to the Riverhouse in the Fall of 2022, and then back to Sunriver in the Fall of 2023.

We are wishing you a very safe and happy holiday this weekend!  Stay well, we can't wait to see you all again


Board Vacancy

Your Oregon PRIMA Board currently has a vacancy in the office of one of the directors.  This vacancy occurs mid-term, so the Board must appoint someone to this role.  Per our bylaws, “the unexpired term will be filled by a qualified designated voting representative member…” until the next annual chapter election. 

Prior to appointing someone to the vacant office, we would like to know if any of you are interested in filling the position!  If you are interested in becoming a Director on the OR-PRIMA Board or have questions about the role, please respond to the following email:  [email protected] 

For those who are interested, we ask that you include a copy of your resume, along with a brief statement (a paragraph or less) about why you would like to be on the Board.  The Board will review the submissions and contact each interested party.  We hope to fill the vacancy on or about the next monthly board meeting on, Thursday, July 9, 2020. 

We look forward to hearing from you!  Take care, and be safe!

Thank you for your continued support of OR-PRIMA.  We can't wait to see you all again!
