Oregon Investment Board Opening

The Oregon Investment Board (OIB) has openings for board members from Hood River, Multnomah and Wasco Counties. The OIB provides economic development loans and grants to projects benefiting Multnomah, Hood River, and Wasco, the Oregon counties lying in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The fund is managed by MCEDD with oversight from the OIB Board of Directors. The Board meets monthly unless there is no business. Board members would have an interest in supporting small businesses in the Oregon portion of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area through investments in projects that create jobs and would reside in the county for which seat they are applying. Board members are appointed by the Oregon Governor and the state application is available here.
