Commissioners

Although the Port of Portland’s activities impact the entire Pacific Northwest, its official boundaries include only Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties in Oregon. The nine-member Port of Portland Commission sets Port policy. Commissioners are appointed by the Governor of Oregon and ratified by the State Senate before serving four-year terms.

Port Commission meetings are open to the public and are normally held on the second Wednesday of each month, 9:30 a.m., in the Chinook Room, 8th Floor, Port of Portland Headquarters, 7200 N.E. Airport Way.
