As the voice of the Oregon nursery and greenhouse industry, the Oregon Association of Nurseries plays a lead role in shaping public policies that benefit OAN members. Through a dedicated professional staff and efforts of the association's volunteer leaders, OAN works hard to protect member interests before legislators and regulators in Salem and Washington, D.C.
The OAN employs a full-time Government Relations Director and has a standing Government Relations Committee that oversees legislative matters pertaining to the nursery, greenhouse and landscape industry.
The OAN is also involved with the activities of the Oregon Nurseries Political Action Committee, the political arm of Oregon's nursery and greenhouse industry. ONPAC has the responsibility of raising and distributing funds to assist in the election and support of legislative candidates who support issues important to nursery/greenhouse industry members. ONPAC works closely with the OAN Government Relations Committee in reviewing important political and legislative issues.
