2021 OCCMA Summer Conference

The 2021 OCCMA Summer Conference will be held from July 6 through July 9, 2021 at the Mt. Bachelor Village, in Bend, Oregon.

The OCCMA Professional Development Committee has planned a diverse series of educational sessions ranging from a council-manager form of government, community engagement, DEI, health & healing, and more. The Conference begins virtually on Tuesday morning with a trade show reception that evening at Mt. Bachelor Village for those attending in person. 

This year's conference will look a little different than our regular conference. We will be following all state-mandated rules regarding COVID-19. All sessions will be general sessions and the main conference room has a maximum capacity of 100 people. If we reach the maximum capacity for the conference room, additional attendees will be able to attend the general session in an adjacent room to the conference room and watch via a television screen. Seating in the main conference room will be given on a first come first serve basis.
