Bill Bradbury
Former Oregon Secretary of State
Salem, Oregon

"Bill Flood has a discerning passion for community issues that is highly regarded throughout the state. The Cultural Trust's creation of Oregon's county and tribal cultural coalitions would never have been possible without Bill's leadership and understanding of the multitude of issues involved."

"Bill was a great mentor when we (Regional Arts and Culture Council) were tasked with developing an outreach plan focused on growing diversity and equity for the organization. The plan we developed was a wonderful roadmap for an organization struggling with diversity and equity. It got us started, and now the conversation and movement is strong."

"Bill Flood played a major role in the successful transition of our organization after the retirement of its prior director. He was the best person we could have chosen for two board retreats to accomplish this, because of his skill in bringing out the best from everyone without overlaying any preconceptions or agenda of his own."
