The New Leaders Collective (NLC) is a network of young leaders who enjoy community collaboration, conversation and service. If you’re interested in attending our monthly Leadership Spotlight event or learning more about us, please reach out to Eddie Moreno, our Membership Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or just show up to one of our many signature events!
OUR SIGNATURE EVENTS
Through our series of free (or low-cost) events, the New Leaders Collective helps connect our members with community leaders, elected officials, and opportunities to participate in community discussions and direct service.
Typically held at 5:30pm on the first Monday of each month, Leadership Spotlights offer NLC members and friends the chance to catch up, get informed, and benefit from an exclusive Q&A session with a leader in our community. Past guests include Portland’s First Lady Nancy Hales, former mayor Sam Adams, Commissioner Dan Saltzman, Milagro Theater’s Jose Garcia, NW Health Foundation’s Nicole Maher, and more! All are welcome and encouraged to attend this no-cost event.
Mix N' Serves
Held quarterly, Mix N' Serves are joint outreach and service opportunities in partnership with local agencies and nonprofit organizations. Peers and young leaders from all around the City are invited to participate. Mix N’ Serves are constructed with themes that resonate with young leaders.
Friday (Night) Forums
Civic engagement with style. Join City Club members and friends for an evening of civic discourse (and drinks). This low-cost event is an opportunity to engage and learn about some of the City’s most pressing issues. It’s a great way to kick off your weekend and a chance to meet some cool people.
Why Behind the Weird
Portland is one of a few cities in the country that has been proudly labeled “Weird”. Our city’s reputation for self-expression has been lovingly satired in IFC’s “Portlandia”. Is the weirdness of our city a caricature or genuine? At Why Behind the Weird low-cost events, we seek to unravel some of the things that give Portland this reputation. Past topics include food culture, bicycle transportation, and more.
Annual Leadership Summit
Held annually in collaboration with other young leader organizations, this event provides access to professional development and networking opportunities.
The New Leaders Collective chooses the topics and speakers who present and co-sponsor. NLC seeks over time to offer a diversity of perspectives. Unless noted, the topics and opinions expressed at City Club of Portland events are those of the speakers and not necessarily those of the City Club of Portland.
