We plan to hold symposia at least twice annually, featuring presentations from invited noted speakers and thinkers. The general public will be invited and for those in attendance there will be breakout workshops and discussion sessions led by the presenters. All will wrestle together with the challenges of today as seen through the prism of Mark Hatfield’s views.
The first symposium will focus U.S. domestic and foreign policy as reflected in the the legislative proposals Hatfield produced in over 30 years in the Senate and can provide guidance and inspiration for our country in its third century.
The second symposium will focus on the State of Oregon. The first speech of Senator Hatfield’s in the Congressional Record was a copy of his farewell address as Oregon’s Governor. The topics include:
Economic opportunity programs
Fish and Game
Flood plain zoning
Offshore and mineral resources
Oregon State Police
Parks and recreation
Transportation and Public Safety
What kind of Oregon?
