Labor & Employment Regional Meetings come to you—mark your calendar for the weeks of February 2-18 2016!

Need help preparing for negotiations and developing effective strategies?

Do you have questions about effectively developing plans of assistance?

Expert help is on the way.

In February, the Oregon School Boards Association will send its experienced negotiators and attorneys to a location near you. These regional workshops will feature informal round table discussions in which you can raise issues and ask questions on labor and employment issues.

As education leaders, you are charged with making the best investments of your resources to support our students – “The Promise of Oregon.” Keep your promise to our students by investing in learning the latest on collective bargaining, case law, and highlighted this year: the Oregon Matrix Model for Educator Summative Evaluations.


Meetings are targeted for board members, district superintendents, community college presidents, human resource directors and business managers.


We created a full agenda to keep you up to date with labor and employment data, trends, best practices and sound advice. We also allowed plenty of time to address questions and concerns of particular significance to you. Dinner from 5 to 5:30 p.m. is included in the registration fee. All attendees are welcome to attend all or any portion of the meeting.
