Oregon Committee on Volunteerism

The Oregon Committee on Volunteerism is a committee of Oregon Volunteers. It was formed as a direct result of feedback gathered in the development of the 2002-2005 Oregon Plan for Volunteerism. Volunteer professionals from across Oregon indicated a strong need to bring together a group of volunteer leaders to enhance volunteerism in our state.

Currently the Committee is working towards the goals of the 2009-2012 State Plan for Volunteerism. The group is composed of up to 25-30 members, the Oregon Committee on Volunteerism meets 3-4 times a year at alternate locations. Committee members are appointed by the Commission chair.
