The Retiree Network was asked to share the following invitation from Dr. Mitsui for retirees to join PCC Day at the Capital, an event which participants in previous years have reported as being a great experience.
Faculty, staff, and students provide credibility and heart to our PCC Lobby Day. We rarely have a budget ask during a short legislative session, but PCC needs additional state resources to move the institution forward and to keep tuition affordable.
In partnership with all community colleges around the State of Oregon we are making a significant ask of $32 million for all CCs in Oregon. How can you help us win? Join us in Salem, OR for PCC Day at the Capitol on February 27th.
Registration is now open: https://www.pcc.edu/about/events/capitol/
