LOC Women's Caucus

The League of Oregon Cities Women’s Caucus is a voluntary association open to elected and appointed current, former and upcoming city leaders which strives to:

  • Promote positive and effective relationships among women city officials, their communities, political leaders, and the LOC;
  • Build and increase the capacity of women to engage in and serve in local government;
  • Serve as a resource to the LOC Board in the formulation of its policy agenda;
  • Equip and advance women city officials to serve in positions of leadership on the LOC Board; and
  • Support, encourage and highlight the successes of city officials who are women.
