ALF Class 28 met in Grants Pass in April.  Class member and Josephine County Commissioner Simon Hare (shown here speaking) hosted the session in a beautiful location in town on the Rogue River. Invited speakers included the owner of the Rough & Ready Timber Company, and a longtime BLM analyst who spoke about O&C lands and the funding issues that have developed based on reduced timber harvests.

Last October, ALF senior fellows gathered in Klamath Falls to learn about the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) and Klamath Hydro Settlement Agreement (KHSA) from local senior fellows who had been involved in the process. In April, these Klamath senior fellows will be featured in a session at the Philanthropy NW conference in Sunriver, to share their remarkable story with the Foundation community throughout the Pacific NW.

One of the advantages of being an ALF Corporate Member is the opportunity to have a senior executive participate in an ALF class, and also to host a class session where leaders from around the state can learn about your company from both a business and a community perspective. Earlier this year, Class 28 had an opporunity to learn more about the operations of ALF Corporate Member Vigor Industrial, a ship building and repair company based on Swan Island in North Portland.

ALF Senior Fellows from several classes helped make Class 27's Forum a very special gathering. Panelists included Joe Gallegos (Class 17), Lee Moore (Class 14), Nichole Maher (Class 20), Margaret Carter (Class 2) and John Frohnmayer (Class 2).  Here, Margaret and John lead the forum attendees in singing "Oregon My Oregon".

ALF is just beginning Year 2 of its recently developed Strategic Framework for 2013-2016. All senior fellows are invited to get involved in helping us acheive our goals of making ALF a stronger and more visible leader in serving the public good in Oregon. Read the full strategic plan here.

The ALF Mission Statement

The purpose of the American leadership Forum of Oregon is to join and strengthen leaders in order to better serve the public good. It enhances leadership by building on the strengths of diversity and by promoting collaborative problem solving within and among communities.
