Neighborhood committee training will focus on networking, ways to tackle projects


The city of Beaverton’s Neighborhood Program invites community members interested in volunteer opportunities to the annual Neighborhood Association Committee training and orientation on Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m., in the Beaverton Activities Center’s Large Community Room, 12500 S.W. Allen Blvd.

The free training covers various topics to help foster leadership, while encouraging community members to work together to achieve NAC goals, said Bill Wood, board member of the West Beaverton Neighborhood Association Committee and founder of the NAC’s “Pages as Pillars” program.

Topics include the qualities of a successful neighborhood association, the tools the Neighborhood Program offers for strengthening and growing your NAC, ways to get involved and design your own community projects, and how to utilize social media to share your NAC with a larger community.

“The NACs are great forums to identify community needs and to develop programs to address them,” Wood said. “You have a group of people who know their community, care about the community and are willing to get involved.”

There will also be opportunities to network with other leaders in the Beaverton community, including both veteran and new NAC board members and city staff. Information will be provided about additional trainings.

Dinner will be provided. RSVP to Neighborhood Program Coordinator Jason Wachs at 503-526-2543 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Monday.
