Special Guest Speaker
Don McIntosh from the Northwest Labor Press will be talking with us a little bit about the labor movement and some opportunities to learn more about how we can stay engaged.
From the Northwest Labor Press About Page: “The Northwest Labor Press is an independent, union-supported newspaper. The print edition is mailed out twice a month to about 45,000 members of more than 80 unions in Oregon and Southwest Washington. The online edition has been maintained here at nwlaborpress.org since 1997. There are few other publications like it. Founded in 1900 by a consortium of trade unions, it’s one of America’s oldest and last remaining labor movement newspapers. Our focus is on the Portland metro area, Oregon, and the Pacific Northwest, but we also report on national and global issues.”
We will also be voting on some alternate positions within our delegations, and I will be providing a report from our most recent executive board meeting,. as well, we will be hearing a request from a fellow PCP to get engaged in their new project.

What to expect for online credentialing for virtual meetings
When you log in to the Zoom meeting, you will be held in a Zoom “waiting room” until a credentialing volunteer admits you to the meeting. Once in the room, if we are able to tell that you are a PCP by name or by visually recognizing you on video, we will consider you credentialed and no further action will be required. If we cannot easily recognize you by face or name and match you with our PCP list, we will interact with you to verify your identity before you are considered credentialed to vote in the meeting. Guests will also be verified in this way but will be labeled with “ZZZ-” in front of their names to help us easily tell which attendees may speak and vote.
Zoom can be used on a computer and by phone, but it is easier to use by computer. We advise doing your best to attend via a laptop or desktop. You can also join using the link with your cellphone, but the screen will be more condensed. Those without a computer can also attend by calling the number listed above, and typing in the Meeting ID.
NOTE: Zoom via the phone has more limitations. You will be limited to:
- Mute/Unmute = *6
- Raising and lowering your hand = *9
