Register for #ELGL14

Prepare for #ELGL14 by learning about who is attending. Find out if you’ll be surrounded by soft talkers, loud eaters, and finger biters or whether you’ll be surrounded by the best in local government.

(Complete the sentence) #ELGL14 is…..the embodiment of our collective interest, passion, and dedication to making great places for all of us to call “home”.

Registration for #ELGL14 cost $60. If you could use that $60 to buy something else, what would you buy?

I’d take the advice of Ron Swanson and promptly invest it in gold.

If #ELGL14 spun off into a music festival, what bands (dead or alive) would you like to see?

  • Sigur Ros
  • Bon Iver
  • M83
  • Matt & Kim
  • Soggy Bottom Boys

During your time in Portland for #ELGL14, how do you plan on “Keeping Portland Weird?”

I have a short list of must visit food carts and plan to be out exploring more of Oregon the rest of the time.

(Complete the sentence) I feel old when…….What are you trying to say? I’m not old.
