Who We Are…

Looking Forward, a 501 (c) 4 nonprofit, was founded in 2014 by a group of Central Oregon’s thought leaders who were committed to ensuring a better future for our community. Today, the Looking Forward team includes 18 Central Oregon citizens from the (past or present) business, nonprofit, education, and government sectors. The team is intentionally diversified and includes members who are male and female, young and old, working and retired, and from both the Traditional and New Economy business sectors.
