In-Person Meetings with Livestreaming: Options for Accessing CCE Programs

We meet at the First United Methodist Church, 1375 Olive Street. An alternate to attending in person is to livestream the meeting. The livestream URL will be posted with the week’s program description during the week of the presentation. You can ask questions in-person or by texting during the meeting.

Masks and vaccination are now optional for those attending the Friday forum. Attendees will socially distance. We are not serving lunches.

Traveled recently? Please use one of our remote ways to access the meeting, but don’t attend in person.

If we must cancel the in-person meeting due to COVID-19 infection rates, we will send a message to our mailing list, update the program description on our website, and put notices on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages. If we cancel our in-person meeting, the program will be still available via livestreaming. You may call or text questions to the speakers; again, information is on the week’s program description.

After the live/livestream meeting, you may access our programs as usual: Via City Club’s YouTube channel and our Facebook page, plus KLCC (89.7 FM) on Mondays at 7 pm; and later, the club’s podcast.


Autobiographical Statement from Sally Bell

Sally Bell is a passionate Oregonian. While not exactly native, her ancestors traveled the Oregon Trail and she feels most at home here in the Pacific Northwest. She spent the early part of her career teaching outdoors and working as an instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School leading remote expeditions in Canada and South America.

She worked in Portland for 10 years with mission-driven companies involved in sustainability, primarily doing business development while teaching at Presidio Graduate School. She is the founder of the mentoring program at University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business where she spent nearly eight years as the Senior Associate Director of Industry Relations and faculty advisor for the Women in Business Club.

She is now the Executive Vice President for the Technology Association of Oregon and local Executive Director for the Southern Willamette Valley. She also serves on the board for Connected Lane County, a local nonprofit focused on youth and STEM programs for underserved youth. She is a connector and convener at heart and in practice. Sally loves spending time on the local trails and ski mountains with her husband and two energetic boys.
