As business district Presidents, you’re a driving economic force and wield substantial political clout in our great city. But with great power comes great responsibility. We want to celebrate your collective power and help you navigate the often unpredictable waters that come with being a business district President!

The Presidents Council is an exclusive gathering just for business district Presidents. Join us for lunch to network, learn from each other, share experiences with peers, workshop your successes and challenges, strengthen your leadership skills and plot the future of your district and Portland’s economy.
