The 3rd Marijuana Training will be held from 9am – 2pm and the Big Village Quarterly Meeting from 3-4:30pm on October 10th, 2016 at The Portland Hilton, 921 SW 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97204. You can register by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
Our Quarterly Coalition Meeting is just around the corner and we’re already getting excited for all the great work we have ahead of us! There will be quite a bit going on at the meeting so we strongly encourage every member of Big Village to attend.
We will be celebrating all of the new members who have joined the coalition over the last quarter and connecting them to projects, meetings, and future events.
In addition, Portland Fire Chief Mike J. Myers will be the keynote speaker, and he’ll be talking about how he sees Big Village and the fire deptartment working together in the future.
As for the Marijuana Training, Oregon’s new laws and culture have increased the need for marijuana focused educational events that are open and free to the community. With tremendous success and drive from the last two Marijuana Trainings, we are expecting to have another outstanding event. As a request from our previous attendees, we have expanded the number of seats this year. So be sure to register today!
The focus of this year’s Marijuana Training will be understanding and working towards meeting the needs of our youth and understanding the needs of the multi-cultural community. These objectives will be reached by allowing the audience to engage in an interactive panel with Portland Area youth. We have a diverse representation of youth from all spectrums of the community to ensure various areas and topics are addressed. We hope this Youth Panel is the first step towards bridging the gap between teens and the community.
