About the Government Relations Team

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 professional staff and efforts of volunteer leaders, OAN works to protect member interests before legislators and regulators in Salem and Washington, D.C.

The OAN has a standing committee that oversees legislative matters pertaining to the nursery, greenhouse and landscape industry.

The OAN is also involved with the Oregon Nurseries Political Action Committee (ONPAC). ONPAC has the responsibility of raising and distributing funds to assist in the election and support of legislative candidates who support issues important to industry members.
