The Oregon Housing Conference is an interdisciplinary gathering of property owners and housing developers, lawmakers and public administrators, public health, law enforcement and community leaders, tenants and neighbors to discuss the ongoing Oregon housing crisis.

The 2020 Northwest Law & Mental Health Conference is FULLY CONCLUDED.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown ordered no events over 250 persons to be held in Oregon on Friday, March 13 , and later expanded her Stay At Home order. This required we postpone the Northwest Law & Mental Health Conference – scheduled for March 13.
Recorded sessions of the Northwest Law & Mental Health Conference are now available online and available for all persons to watch. Continuing education credit for the conference through the Oregon State Bar, the Oregon Department of Public Standards and Safety Training, and the NASW Oregon is available to those who registered for the conference. Testing for NASW Oregon has concluded.
