As a staffer, you know that the business of Portland is about more than just business. It’s about people, neighborhoods and culture. You’ve put your heart and soul into transforming the business districts that bind our city together. It’s a labor of love – and most of the time you go it alone.

The Staffer Lunch is a quarterly gathering of the staff who work for neighborhood business districts. Join us to network, share ideas with and learn from peers, strategize and navigate working with a diverse set of businesses and boards of directors.
