The League of Oregon Cities (LOC) is the trusted, go-to resource to help Oregon city staff members and elected officials serve their cities well and speak with one voice.  We support Oregon’s cities by connecting city leaders and state legislators, advocating for cities’ needs, sharing vital information, and helping build vibrant, resilient communities that Oregonians are proud to call home.

The Operations and Member Engagement Director is a newly created position that will perform highly responsible and complex management duties, while also undertaking a variety of special projects for the Executive Director. 

This position is expected to have three main components.  First, the Director will be responsible for developing strategic plans and overseeing employees in the development of major member service features of the LOC, including:  two major conferences; the training program; affiliate management; and external engagement with Oregon cities and their representatives.  Second, the Operations and Member Engagement Director will be responsible for all internal LOC operations, with the exception of finance.  This includes responsibility for the organization’s IT needs, facility management, and other duties that ensure the organization is effectively managed.  Third, the Director will serve as the LOC’s diversity coordinator – a role which has responsibility for working with the LOC Board, staff and membership to create, implement and sustain programming through an equity lens that reflects the mission and vision of the LOC.

The Operations and Member Engagement Director will be an active and equal member of the LOC management team.  The Director will oversee an annual Division budget of approximately $1.7 million.
