November Government and Economic Committee Meeting
– Ways to Diversity and Build Revenue Streams
Location: Adventist Medical Center – 10123 SE Market St, Portland OR 97216November 14, 2018 @ 7:30 am
The East Portland Chamber of Commerce is hosting Ruth Miles, Tribal Liaison and Small Business Advocate with the Oregon Secretary of State Office.
Ruth Miles, a small business advocate, will discuss a couple of interesting case studies and talk about ways to diversify and build revenue streams.
With 18 years of experience running small businesses to add to her nine years of service in the Legislative branch, Ruth Miles understands first-hand the challenges entrepreneurs face. As Oregon’s inaugural and chief Advocate, she’s crisscrossed Oregon over the last four years to visit with business leaders and associations, chamber of commerce and community partners to hear their concerns about getting caught in red tape. And everywhere she goes, she runs with scissors.
As the Tribal Liaison for Secretary of State, Ruth oversees agency relations with Oregon’s nine federally-recognized tribes. She works continuously to improve communication and service.
