March 23, 2015 – weekly land trust news

Hi everyone,

Hopefully everyone’s seen COLT’s most recent newsletter. Lots of things to celebrate and share in this month’s edition. (If you aren’t signed up to receive it, you can do so here.)

Two quick things of note:

  • We now have a webpage dedicated to the bills COLT is tracking during this legislative session in Oregon.
    • We’ll keep it updated throughout this session
  • We have also begun to upload these Monday news mailings on our website as well.
    • If you have seen something in past mailings but can’t find it, you can try searching on our website to find it.
    • This also means these Monday mailings will be more simple, as you can always look back on previous emails stored on the website.

I have also slightly reorganized this Monday mailing, creating a separate section for webinars and conferences.
