What is the OAMR Strategic Plan?
The Oregon Association of Municipal Recorders (OAMR) started nearly 40 years ago as a grass-roots organization led by volunteers to support municipal recorders across the state. Over the years, we have offered professional development opportunities and networking events to support our members as well as welcome those new to the profession. The organization has operated with the support of many member volunteers and has seen tremendous growth in membership and the professional development opportunities provided. From statewide conferences to in-person and virtual training opportunities offered throughout the year, OAMR has supported and connected professional municipal recorders for the last three decades.
As the OAMR Board has reflected on these accomplishments, there is a great sense of pride for all that has been done and a desire to consider how to best support professional recorders into the future. The Board continues to see changes in technology, local government services, the role of the municipal recorder, the workplace, and more. The Board recognizes the challenges of growth as well as the exciting opportunities on the horizon. In an effort to ensure this profession is ready to adapt to the rapidly-changing environment and best serve Oregon communities, the Board decided to develop the first strategic plan for our organization.
The Strategic Plan is an exciting milestone and will help OAMR be more strategic and focused, make the most of volunteer resources, and explore ways to expand professional development opportunities. It will also help reconnect our diverse membership after two unprecedented years of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most importantly, this Strategic Plan is designed to serve you, our valued members, as you grow and develop in your careers.
We have envisioned the future together and we cannot accomplish it alone. We need your continued engagement and support to make it happen. We will present the Strategic Plan to members across the state through a series of “on-the-road" trainings so that all members have the opportunity to learn about the OAMR mission, our collective vision for the next five years, and how to get involved in achieving these goals together.
Thank you for sharing your ideas, needs, and priorities for the future. We look forward to working together to bring this vision to life!
