Otak was well represented at the Oregon Chapter APWA Spring Conference, which took place in Hood River, Oregon. The conference drew over 150 attendees, including consultants, venders, and representatives from various local and statewide jurisdictions. Otak participated as a sponsor, which involved contributing to social-hour festivities, as well as having an innovative and informative booth showcasing a range of our recently completed projects. The booth also highlighted our upcoming move to Portland next month, which generated a lot of interest.

In an effort to further our sustainability goals, our booth provided QR codes to brochures on our website, making printed brochures unnecessary. We also held our first paperless raffle! Attendees who visited our booth were entered electronically into a raffle for Starbucks Card eGifts, which were emailed to the winners. The raffle was a success, and we look forward to refining and repeating this process at future conferences.

The conference featured a wide variety of presentation topics ranging from floodplain management improvements to moving the Sellwood Bridge. Many of the presentations were applicable to our wide range of expertise. Otak maintains an active APWA presence year-round, and the Spring Conference is always a fun opportunity to connect with our peers and share our work.
