Partner Member

In 2017, the OSFMA Board of Directors embarked on a restatement of the Association's Bylaws. Their intention was to update them for best practices and fix inconsistencies that arose from modifications made over the years.

But perhaps the most exciting change to the Bylaws was the addition of a Partner Member position to serve on the Board of Directors. This position is the culmination of discussions about how to better involve OSFMA's Business Partners in the organization and is the start of their work to provide great resources, access to school members, and a greater community of people committed to the success of public and private schools in Oregon.

Current Partner Member

Jennifer Lee of SERVPRO of Gresham was selected as the first Partner Member. As a liaison between the OSFMA Board and the Partner Membership she is your go-to contact if you have suggestions or issues you'd like to raise.

Responsibilities of the Partner Member

The Partner Member to the Board serves as liaison between the Board and all partner members. They serve a non-voting, two-year term and are appointed by the Board of Directors. The Partner Member serves on committees as assigned by the President and assists the President as requested.
