OATOA - Oregon Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors


The Oregon Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (OATOA) is a professional organization of individuals and organizations serving residents in the development, regulation and administration of rights of way use licenses/franchises, community broadband plans, wireless siting, land use zoning and site review, and other Right-of-Way management policies and programs. We are a regional chapter of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA).

OATOA was one of the first state chapters formed and recognized by NATOA.  Membership is available to any national member within the State of Oregonand any national member.  Because many cities and counties in Oregon do not have staff assigned to telecommunications management, our members are available and frequently contacted by others for advice and information.

Since Oregon laws allow local governments considerable control over their public rights of way, we also work closely with the League of Oregon Cities and Association of Oregon Counties to prevent hostile industry-initiated legislation restricting local authority. That effort continues each legislative session.

OATOA members frequently discuss common issues and share information with each other.  If you are not a member, please consider joining us!  For more information contact any of the OATOA officers listed below or Reba Crocker at 503.724.0766 or
