Eventually, CP is intended to have chapters in all major metro areas, state offices in Olympia and Salem, and a regional coordination center, perhaps in Portland. There would be a single corporate governing board with representation from citizens, businesses and government agencies (ex officio). Chapter advisory boards will assist with local recruiting of volunteers and disseminating information. We will seek memberships from individuals, foundation grants, and sponsorships from companies – especially those with business lines that would profit from greater preparedness activity and larger businesses that depend on the transportation, communication and energy infrastructure to continue their operations.
The chart below illustrates our vision of an eventual structure, given success in recruiting members and securing funding.
