It’s no secret that at Portland Internetworks, we’re extremely proud to be part of our community – Be it our local or greater communities. As we’ve grown, we’ve continued to find ways to “internetwork” with groups that help unite people and businesses with similar passions, challenges, and stories.

Having moved our headquarters to across the Willamette River to Portland’s Central Eastside back in 2007, we joined the Central Eastside Industrial Council. By engaging with the districts’ native businesses and makers through the CEIC’s quarterly meetings and events, we help to preserve the rich industrial history of the neighborhood, while also feeding the local economy. In 2018, we joined the Portland Business Alliance, who advocates for and supports the prosperity of businesses of all sizes throughout the region.

We’re also involved with vertical-specific associations outside the tech realm. We provide IT support for the Oregon Society of CPA’s and belong to the Architecture Foundation of Oregon (afo), who works to honor, connect, and inspire the current and future leaders and thinkers in their respective fields.

Each month, we host a peer group of local business executives at our office. Beyond our local reach, we’re also members of several national peer groups and advisory boards. At least quarterly, we travel to meet with other industry leaders to share and hear each other’s stories, strengthen and expand networks, forecast and set goals for the future, and ultimately help drive the success of not only our separate businesses, but the industry, as well.

Membership in such organizations helps to foster a strong sense of community, while supporting, stimulating, and enriching a thriving network of local individuals and businesses through its’ resources and connections.
