September 2018 Kickoff Event

Oswego Pointe Clubhouse

The US Census

Have you given much thought to the 2020 Census, other than the recent controversy about the citizenship question? The 2010 Census counted the total U.S. population at 308,745,538.  The July 1, 2017, U.S. population estimate is 325,719,176.  At our Fall Kickoff event we’ll be learning more about why the census plays such a vital role in our representative democracy.

The annual September Kickoff will feature Charles Rynerson, a demographer from the Population Research Center (PRC), College of Urban & Public Affairs, Portland State University.  He will speak about the upcoming 2020 Census, what it means for Oregon, and the possible impact of adding a sixth congressional district.  He has worked on censuses, surveys, population and economic estimates, and forecasts in urban and rural communities.

The dinner cost is $15 per person and includes wine. Reservations are required and should be sent to Sonja Kollias, either via email (vskollias@aol.com) or phone (503-636-2187).  

Guests are welcome.  Bring family and friends.

DIRECTIONS: Take State Street to Foothills Road; follow Foothills Road to a 3-way stop; keep right; go downhill to left-turn lane; turn left onto Foothills Drive; building straight ahead is the Club House.
