Mission and Leadership

Port operations impact the entire Pacific Northwest. But as a regional government agency, its official boundaries include only Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties in Oregon.

Mission
The mission of the Port of Portland is to enhance the region's economy and quality of life by providing efficient cargo and air passenger access to national and global markets.

Commissioners
A nine-member commission, appointed by the Governor of Oregon and ratified by the Oregon Senate, sets Port policy during its monthly meetings. At least two commissioners must each live in one of the three counties in the Port district. The remaining members may live in any part of the state. Commissioners serve four-year terms and can be reappointed. The Commission appoints the Port's executive director.
