7 Organizations & Networking Calendars for Marketers in Portland

If you’re a marketer or business development professional, it’s likely you seek opportunities to sharpen your skills and meet others in the field. We have several organizations here in Portland that provide both education and the networking that we all thrive on.

Explore these groups next time you’re looking to step out of the office and connect with the community. And there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer on a board or a committee. You’ll use your skills in new ways, learn and get inspired, have fun and meet some amazing people along the way.

Here’s a list with links to their event calendars. You’ll want to bookmark this one!
