Beaver Caucus Member,

We have an historic opportunity to make a huge difference for OSU and Oregon. Can you help?

Governor Kate Brown’s budget for 2018 was just released and she’s recommending the Legislature approve $39 million to construct our OSU Cascades campus in Central Oregon. This is unexpected and game-changing, but we need our OSU alumni and friends to get it through the next legislative session.

Can you join us on Thursday, January 11 at the State Capitol in Salem? Our primary mission will be to meet with legislators and talk about the importance of approving this major investment in OSU and Oregon.

We will have a conference call on Wednesday, January 10 at 4:00pm to discuss strategy, messaging, and logistics for the day. Never met with a legislator? No problem! We’ll walk you through how it’s done. On Thursday, January 11 we’ll meet at the State Capitol in Salem and you’ll go around to your legislator meetings with 3-4 other OSU advocates as a team.

Please see the agenda below:

Wednesday, January 10

4:00pm – 5:00pm – Conference call to discuss strategy and messaging (Conference number will be circulated as the date gets closer)

Thursday, January 11

10:00am – 10:20am – Meet in Basement Room B of the Public Service Building to pick up messaging documents and meet other members of your team before heading out to legislator meetings
