OWEB is holding a Council Support Listening Session in Salem

Ore­gon Water­shed Enhance­ment Board (OWEB) is hold­ing Coun­cil Sup­port Lis­ten­ing Ses­sions around the state to hear stake­holder ideas for how to achieve the future vision for coun­cil capac­ity. OWEB has posted mate­ri­als for the Lis­ten­ing Ses­sions as well as OWEB’s ideas for process and pol­icy changes on their web­site.

The Lis­ten­ing Ses­sions is sched­uled for:

  • Tues­day, Decem­ber 4, 1-4pm, Salem — Ore­gon Depart­ment of Forestry Build­ing C, Tillam­ook Room (direc­tions). This will also be a webinar.
  • Webi­nar Details
    • The URL for the webi­nar will be posted on our web­site and sent in an email by next week.
    • If you can watch a YouTube video on your com­puter, you have every­thing you need to participate.
    • Webi­nar atten­dees should note that you will be watching/listening to the ses­sion with lit­tle inter­ac­tiv­ity with the facil­i­ta­tors. You will be able to respond to ques­tions and pro­vide input (which will be incor­po­rated into the final report) via a mod­er­ated “chat” area.

With lim­ited time, the Lis­ten­ing Ses­sions will not focus on imple­men­ta­tion details, but will explore con­cep­tual ideas, includ­ing your ideas, about poten­tial changes to coun­cil sup­port grant areas and work­ing at a whole water­shed scale in order to sup­port the future vision for coun­cil capac­ity. To help you think about pos­si­ble solu­tions and meet­ing the future vision, OWEB has devel­oped some ques­tions to think about [pdf].
These ques­tions will be dis­cussed at small groups dur­ing the Lis­ten­ing Sessions.

Short sum­maries of the first four lis­ten­ing ses­sions, held in Regions 1 [pdf ], 2 [pdf ], 5 [pdf], and 6 [pdf] are available.

A detailed report, includ­ing all lis­ten­ing ses­sions notes and sur­vey mon­key feed­back, will be avail­able in Jan­u­ary 2013. These brief reports are meant to facil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tion and idea shar­ing between regions dur­ing the lis­ten­ing ses­sion process.
