About the Board

The Creative Portland Corporation (CPC), established November 2008, is a nonprofit organization created to receive donations, grants, and contributions in support of the City of Portland’s economic development efforts, which enhance and create business in the creative economy, arts district development, and employment opportunities.


The Board of Directors consists of up to 21 individuals:
  • 8 are directors appointed by the corporator through the Portland City Council
  • 2 are ex officio members (the mayor or city council member and the city manager or designee associated with the Economic Development Department)
  • 11 are elected by the board of directors
Two-thirds of the Directors, with the exception of the ex officio members, must be either residents of, own a business located in, or work in the City of Portland.
