The Northwest Outreach Center is looking for individuals to serve on our advisory board. We are looking for 2 people from each state in our region (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska), who work with  or are associated with Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals in postsecondary settings. Our first meeting will take place the afternoon prior to the Region X Symposium (see above) on April 20, and we expect to meet once each year thereafter. If you are interested in serving as an advisory member, or would like to nominate someone, please contact Cheryl Davis through any of the means listed at the end of this e-mail.

Jeanne Kincaid, Esq., will be presenting a workshop session at the Region X Symposium described above on legal issues. If there are any topics you are particularly interested in seeing covered, please contact Cheryl Davis (contact info below) and she will pass the info along to Jeanne.

E-MAIL NOTIFICATION LIST

This is a new service of the Northwest Outreach Center. In an effort to reach interested parties in the Northwest as quickly as possible with upcoming events, I have developed this e-mail notification list. Future notices will be similar to this, with links to more detailed info. If you do not have internet access, contact Cheryl Davis for further information on the topic in which you are interested. The notices will NEVER include an attachment. Notices will be sent about once a month, more or less often as the need arises. If you wish to continue to receive these notices, do nothing. If you would like to be removed from this list, notify Cheryl Davis and you will be removed immediately. Please pass this info on to other interested parties. They will need to contact Cheryl Davis to sign up to receive the info automatically. Notices will also be posted to the NWOC website at http://www.wou.edu/nwoc under Mailing List.
