The Oregon Travel Information Council currently has one vacant council position! ABOUT THE COUNCIL The Council is responsible for oversight and policymaking for the agency and its various program areas. Each councilor must sit on at least one committee: executive committee, rest area committee, finance committee, historical marker committee, or heritage tree committee. Committees are primarily responsible for the formulation and recommendation of policies to the Council. The Council is comprised of 9 members which includes the chairperson of the Oregon Transportation Commission and 8 members appointed by the Governor, with at least one representative from each of Oregon’s congressional districts (the current vacancy may be filled from any congressional district). The Governor will appoint members for their knowledge of, experience with or interest in economic development, travel within Oregon, recreational opportunities in Oregon, Oregon history.

MISSION The Travel Information Council’s mission is to create a great visitor experience by providing directions to destinations, connecting travelers with Oregon’s resources, and ensuring safe and convenient travel.

MEETINGS The Travel Information Council meets quarterly (March, June, September, and December) on the second Monday from 9:30 am to approximately 1:30 pm. Committees have separate schedules, most meeting quarterly or bi-monthly. The Governor is committed to ensuring that all boards, commissions, and councils represent the growing age, racial, and gender diversity of the state. This is an amazing opportunity to pool our collective viewpoints, visions, and hopes for Oregon—and all community members are welcome and encouraged to serve.
