SORA Summer Mixer – Thank You!

The SORA Summer Mixer on July 21 was a great success! We learned about the new minimum wage structure in Oregon, and had an enlightening discussion on sharing data and analysis across agencies. Thanks to everyone who joined us!

We hope you’ll join us again for our fall event, which will be announced soon.

A big thanks to all of you who turned out for the Summer Social Mixer.  This was the first time we had ever tried an event of this type, and we’re glad to see it was a huge hit!

An even bigger thanks for our two presenters – Blake Whitson and Chelsea Clinton – for putting together such great presentations.

Be sure to stay tuned for the announcement of our Fall event.

SORA’s April Meeting Sparks Great Discussion


Almost 50 people attended the State of Oregon Research Academy’s most recent event. Two great presentations enlightened the group:

The group was lively as Nick discussed young people (16-24) leaving the labor force, and were intrigued with how Clair and her team designed and implemented a website tracking the success of Governor Kitzhaber’s 10 Year Plan.

A huge thanks to Nick and Clair, and to all the SORA members who attended this event!
