Portland (Or.) -- Politics and government, Annual Leadership Symposium, Washington (State). Governor (1997-2005 : Locke), Oregon. Governor (1995-2003 : Kitzhaber)
The Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies was created to better connect the resources of higher education to the issues of the six-county Portland-Vancouver Metropolitan Area, and to bring new attention to critical regional issues. Annually the Institute organizes a Leadership Symposium to bring citizens and leaders together to hear new information and ideas about the metropolitan area and its issues, and to discuss and identify new courses of action.
