Linda Van Powell presenting a Civic Outreach new business greet to Brian Whiteside, COO of Drone Complier.

Civic Outreach Greets

The purpose of the Civic Outreach Executive Greet is to welcome new executives to the Corvallis community. It provides useful information including a welcome from the mayor, school boundary map, Oregon DMV manual and voter registration, library card application, and locations/contact info for medical care. New Executives are also given a package containing profiles and business cards for each Civic Outreach sponsor, restaurant menus and other helpful items.


Happily Greeted New Executives

To Dr. Hendricks from Mark Kalmar,

Dr. Hendricks, I am introducing you to Linda Van Powell, President of Civic Outreach.  She welcomes executives to Corvallis.  She knows pretty much everything there is to know about the community and can point you in the proper direction should you have any questions, comments or concerns.  I believe she spent about 15 minutes welcoming me and I found it very valuable.

Mark Kalmar

President of Medical Information Management.

Thank you for your welcome package. I was looking through the materials and was very impressed with the thought and care you put into assembling the information.  I especially liked the leadership book (profile pages) which provided the bios of key leaders in the community.  It is refreshing to see how much the executives in Corvallis care about the city and being involved.

I would like to express my appreciation to you and the members of Civic Outreach for the warm and gracious welcome to the community of Corvallis.  I have received many letters from the business owners associated with Civic Outreach (The Sponsors) representing a wonderful cross section of businesses and organizations, offering me goods and services and words of welcome.  The Civic Outreach packet of information you provided me was extremely helpful to my family as we begin to explore the city and region: it is an invaluable reference.  I am overwhelmed by the generosity and goodwill of your organization.

Our family just celebrated our one year anniversary of moving to Corvallis. Many months ago you greeted me over coffee at Coffee Culture (now a favorite spot for our whole family). So many things have been checked off our list since landing here (new doctors, dentists, kids enrolled in schools and so much more).

What I came to appreciate so much about your referral list was that it was a WELL CURATED! In an age of information overload, your hand-picked list saved me so much time and effort. Because you personally introduced yourself and shared that you are a long time resident and local business owner I trusted your carefully picked referral list infinitely more than a Google search. Thank you for what has proven to be a very handy, time-saving resource!

Let’s do something extraordinary, Jenny
