Hello all, I look forward to seeing the group for our September meetings in Bend! On Friday September 16, 2022, ORHA will be having their committee meetings – If you are a delegate and would like to join a committee meeting, please email for the schedule and links (this notice was recently emailed out). Friday evening, ORHA will be hosting their Leadership Dinner and this invite has recently been emailed out as well.

Additionally, on Saturday September 17, 2022, ORHA will be having their September board meeting – If you are a delegate and would like to join the board meeting, please email for the meeting link and required NDA. Board Members, please keep an eye out in your email during the week of 09/12/2022 for the board packet – Presenters, please have your board packet reports submitted to NO LATER THAN 09/05/2022.

Lastly, on Sunday September 18, 2022, ORHA will be having an ORHA Education Inc. Meeting from 09:00 am – 10:00 am in Tia’s Hotel Suite.

If you plan on attending the Bend meetings, an online RSVP is required for both virtual and in-person attendance. We will have a private meeting room all day Friday and Saturday; however, due to lodging contract terms/restrictions and budgetary restrictions – ORHA was not able to secure a room block for lodging. Members will be responsible for securing their own lodging and this is explained in further details on the Board Meeting Notice. The Board Meeting Notice and Reservation details were recently emailed out – If you have any questions, please email

We have recently completed setting up our new ORHA emails for Executive Committee Members and ORHA Committee Chairs. Please see the following updates:

Executive Committee (Email All) |
Tia Politi, President |
Benjamyn Seamans, Vice President |
Cloud Miller, Admin |
Violet Wilson, Secretary |
Dennis Chappa, Treasurer |
Sage Coleman, Past President |
Jason Miller, Advisor 1 |
Maria Menguita, Advisor 2 |
Jill Maricich, Director at Large 1 |

Lori Black, Bookkeeper |

Tia Politi, ORHA Forms Committee Chair|
Cloud Miller, Technology Committee Chair |
Maria Menguita, Social Media Committee Chair |
Alex Wilkens, Survey Committee Chair |
Violet Wilson, Education Committee Chair | (Coming Soon)

With our new professional emails in place, ORHA has drafted a Microsoft Email User Policy that was presented during the July meeting in Silverton. This policy will be executed by all ORHA email users and will help ORHA maintain quality of control, emphasizing an importance on cyber security, and association cyber safety – email to receive a copy of this user policy. Moving forward, please be sure to email by position (i.e. President, Vice President or Secretary) or topic (i.e. Forms, Technology, or Social Media) – not by person.

Please be vigilant of email scams and always double check that the email address ends in Remember, email display names can be masked and it’s extremely important that you click on the name to verify the email address is legitimate. No ORHA members will ever request money or wire transfers via email, we’ll never offer any kind of legal advice, and our email addresses will always end with our website,

All invoices are to be submitted to, they are then taken out of email for an approval process that’s tracked with the Executive Committee and secure from Email Scams. Please do not email invoices directly to Bookkeeper or Treasurer; for cyber-security reasons, neither officials will approve or pay an invoice outside of the official approval process (starting with submitting the initial invoice to office).

Our office is periodically checking emails and voicemails Monday through Thursday should you have any questions or concerns; however, please be advised that ORHA will not be returning calls or emails regarding landlord helpline questions or tenant questions. If you are a current member looking to contact your local association or are new member looking to join a local association, please visit

To submit your ideas for an upcoming newsletter, please email by the 1st of the month.

** Reminder that the ORHA Monthly Membership Dues Form must be submitted by the 15th of each month **
