Benefits of Participation in OPPMA

Performance measurement practitioners and users from all levels in government will benefit from the Oregon Public Performance Measurement Association. The ability to share knowledge and pool resources will be fundamental for members, enabling them to keep up to date in a field which is developing and moving at a rapid rate.

Participants will be added to a mailing list of people interested in the field of Performance Measurement and Management and will be kept informed of developments within OPPMA and opportunities to collaborate and learn.

There will be opportunities for participants to interact, including opportunities to network at conferences and workshops.  It is anticipated that workshops and seminars will be organized and held by members for members.
