Hi I'm Linda Van Powell and I have had the honor of welcoming over 2000 new executives to Corvallis over the past 17 years. My job as the Director of Civic Outreach is to locate the new executives who are moving here and greet them with a civic packet full of pertinent information. I represent the family owned business leaders of Corvallis as well as Oregon State University, the City of Corvallis, Samaritan Health Services and the Corvallis Clinic. I help connect the new executives to what services they may need.
I also welcome new business ventures to Corvallis. As an added benefit to my Civic Outreach greets, I now offer tours to familiarize the new executive or new business owner with this community. Tours are tailored to each individuals questions or contact needs. Several hours are designated for these tours and a fee is charged.
