Membership

Oregon PVA will establish and maintain a membership program for disabled citizens of Oregon with an emphasis on spinal cord injured or neurologically impaired veterans. This program will also promote the name Oregon PVA by locating new members and volunteers through: networking with other disability groups, media, and membership drives. Through the membership program we offer two social events annually in the Portland area. The first membership event is held in August at Oaks Park. In September, the members are invited to our Annual Banquet to celebrate our year in review. For more information please click the following links.

Reasons to become a member:

Recreation Fund 
The Recreation Fund was established to give the opportunity to choose an activity that they enjoy to participate in. This program reimburses members for their activity expenses on an annual basis. The motive behind this program is to get the paralyzed veteran out of the house and into society. Click here to see what people are saying about the recreation fund.

Annual Banquet
The Annual Banquet gives the Chapter the opportunity to recognize the value of its volunteers as well as present awards. The event is semi-casual and will be held at the Spirit Mountain Casino on October 1, 2011. We will also be providing a limited number of rooms at a discounted rate for members’ enjoyment.
