Celebrate Oregon + We stand with OECFebruary 25, 2011
Empowering teams to make a difference — it’s something the FMYI team loves to do. We’re also proud of our home state and there are many reasons why we launched FMYI in this community seven years ago.
The people. The food. The rivers. The bike paths. The mountains. It’s all about our surrounding environment and how it creates a quality of life for us in Portland, Oregon (or should I say Portlandia?).
Since we care about our surrounding environment for ourselves, our kids and generations to come, FMYI is proud to support the work of Oregon Environmental Council – the oldest environmental organization in the state.
We stand with OEC.
Join us on March 3rd to Celebrate Oregon at OEC’s annual event. An evening full of tasty food and drink (from Oregon, of course) and an opportunity to learn more about the great work OEC is doing (and has done for 40+ years).
FMYI is proud to be a Premier Sponsor of the event.
We like to empower teams in many ways and are excited that FMYI is the chosen event planning software for OEC. “Thanks to FMYI, we are working more effectively together,” said Andrea Durbin, Executive Director. OEC uses FMYI to coordinate and plan for this upcoming event allowing them to collaborate with board members, volunteers and staff to allow for a successful celebration. In a recent conversation, Jason Menke, Membership and Marketing Director told me that “FMYI is our central place everyone involved can visit to stay up to date and remain informed is invaluable – a huge asset as we prepare to Celebrate Oregon every year.”
We recognize planning events and collaborating as a team requires a level of understanding, a process and most importantly, communication.
The Oregon Environmental Council and its partners launched a campaign to create a BPA-free Oregon to protect our kids from toxics. As a member of OEC’sEmerging Leaders Board, I’m proud to say that FMYI is supporting a BPA-Free Oregon.
There are many staggering facts about BPA and its affects on our health -bisphenol A is a synthetic estrogen that impairs children’s brain development, brings on early onset of puberty and reduces sperm count in men. It also has been linked to breast cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
Please take a minute to learn more the truth behind BPA and support the efforts for a BPA-Free Oregon.
Keep empowering [for our environment and our future],
