APEKSI, APPSI, & APKASI - League of Oregon Cities (Resource Cities)

The focus areas of the partnership between the League of Oregon Cities, Association of Cities (APEKSI), Association of Provinces (APPSI), and Association of Counties (APKASI) were to improve communication with and encourage active participation of members, build the capacity of the associations to serve as advocates on behalf of their members, and improve association management. The fourth exchange took place in September 2002. This exchange focused on developing the roles and responsibilities of professional Board of Directors in a client-driven organization. The outcomes were that the association leadership understood the roles and responsibilities of the Board, Executive Directors, and staff, and the leadership learned how to build a successful program/program budget.
