An Update To Our Members and Community

November 30, 2017

Dear Members and Community,

Thank you for your patience and compassion throughout this difficult process. You are the heart of APANO, we recognize the confusion and concern many of you have expressed, and honor the trust you place in us. Since our last message, board and staff have been listening and working together to identify next steps of action.

As part of our commitment to take seriously all concerns brought to us and seek concrete ways to move forwards, we have reached out to Elisa J. Dozono, a Partner at Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP. She has agreed to serve as an independent community liaison to directly hear concerns through December 31, 2017. This will be a special measure in addition to our standard procedures for receiving concerns. Her role as a community liaison will include:

  • Reviewing APANO personnel policies and HR materials and processes
  • Reaching out to persons who have expressed concerns
  • Receiving concerns from any parties
  • Conducting follow-up investigation of any claims, at her discretion
  • Providing an impartial assessment report to be shared with the APANO and APANO Communities United Fund Board

We will report back to you and detail our steps for resolving these concerns.

We encourage anyone with concerns to contact Elisa directly at 503.205.2450 or

Throughout this period, we are grateful for the care, honesty and grace you have afforded us to navigate this process. We continue to invite your input on how you hope APANO responds and grows from this and we can be reached directly at

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
