Unified Business Oregon

About UBO

Unified Business Oregon was formed in 2018 as a non-profit membership association to help define the voice of Oregon's business community.  


Our member businesses are comprised of small and large firms from across industry sectors throughout the state.  Our goal is to make sure policy makers understand how their decisions impact not just business owners, but the employees and customers in the communities elected officials represent.
