I look forward to working with my colleagues to engage all Oregonians in understanding our Oregon heritage and to foster a broader and more inclusive interpretation of the history of our great State,” noted Moreland about her appointment.

“We are excited to have someone with a background that spans historic preservation and cultural heritage interpretation,” said Beth Dehn, Heritage Commission Coordinator. “Moreland will bring valuable insight to the Commission.”

The Heritage Commission is comprised of nine people representing Oregon's heritage and geographical diversity. There are also nine advisory representatives from state agencies and statewide organizations.

The mission of the Heritage Commission is to secure, sustain, and enhance Oregon's heritage by ensuring coordination of heritage initiatives by public and private organizations; advocacy on its behalf; education of the public about its extent and value; and promotion and celebration of its diversity.
