Levels of Participation

OCEAN Goers are members of the global community who are interested in learning more about the inquiries and activities of Oregon Coast Energy Alliance Network.  OCEAN Goers receive updates and invitations to outreach webinars and other open OCEAN events.  Becoming an OCEAN Goer indicates an interest in being informed about the Oregon coast perspective on OSW and other advanced energy technologies.

OR Coasters are residents, businesses, agencies, or other organizations with a base of operations (physical presence) on the Oregon coast.  OCEAN OR Coaster members can participate on committees, are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors and can attend and vote at OCEAN’s annual meeting.

OCEANs Non-OR Coast membership is open to individuals, businesses, agencies, or other organizations not residing on the Oregon coast.  They can participate on committees, are eligible to serve as executive advisors to Board of Directors and can attend OCEAN’s annual meeting.

Provisioners are paying members who contribute at $10,000 or above to sponsor one or more of OCEAN’s Educate, Listen and Advocate activities.
