Community engagement to support Oregon Health Policy Board committee recruitment and retention

Transformation Center staff support the Health Policy and Analytics Division’s community engagement work. Current work involves developing streamlined processes to support recruitment and retention of more diverse Oregon Health Policy Board (OHPB) committee members by:
  • Coordinating recruitment across OHPB committees, 
  • Standardizing the collection and reporting of demographic and sector data about committee members and applicants,  
  • Supporting retention of diverse committee members, and  
  • Recommending changes to authorizing statutes and charters to increase committee member diversity.  
This process gives OHA and OHPB the opportunity to build rapport and trust with the community based on appointing committee members with lived and cross-cultural experience.

Processes to support recruitment and retention of more diverse OHPB committee members include the following: 
  1. Pre-recruitment activities
