Who is Host2Host?
Host2Host is an Oregon-registered, membership-based, non-profit 501(c)6 trade association. We seek to protect and enhance the interests of Oregon’s homesharing host community.
We are hosts. Just like you, we welcome guests from all over the world in our homes, apartments, ADU's and vacation rental properties where jurisdictions permit the use.
Host2Host recognizes that the short-term rental phenomenon has social consequences. Our members seek to operate their homesharing businesses in a manner that adds value not just to the individual bottom line, but to the community as well.
Who is a member of Host2Host?
Anybody can become a member of Host2Host. We are focused on serving as a unified voice for Oregon’s homesharing host community. We also promote connecting hosts with local small businesses. Hosts outside of Oregon may join for the access to our on-line educational resources and business directory.
Portland-focused or statewide advocacy?
In the immediate term, Host2Host is primarily focused on Portland regulatory policy and permit matters. As time and resources permit, we expect to expand our reach.
How is Host2Host organized?
We are organized in committees operating under a five-member Executive Committee. Current operating committees are Advocacy, Education, Communication, Membership. We anticipate new committees will be formed as we grow.

Five members of our Host2Host Conference Committee huddled one day early in the Spring of 2017 to envision how the Oregon host community might be sustainably served with a consistent voice. In September 2017 Host2Host was registered in the State of Oregon as a non-profit trade association.
