The Oregon Native American Chamber (ONAC) invites you to join us for our Networking Luncheon. We will be hosting our luncheon at Metro's Council Chambers. We know that many of our members join ONAC as a way to grow their business and connect to the community. This event provides a unique opportunity to meet, network, and build relationships with business and community leaders (Native and non-native) from across Oregon and SW Washington.

This month's luncheon features invited speakers:

He holds dual master’s degrees from Princeton in public policy and economics, and urban and regional planning. He also holds graduate-level certification in science, technology, and environmental policy.
