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 can be 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 six-member Executive Committee and 11 member Board of Directors. Current operating committees are Advocacy, Education, Communication, Membership. We anticipate new committees will be formed as we grow.
Host2Host is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. We believe that Host2Host plays a key role to promote safe, secure and welcoming experiences for each guest, regardless of race, ethnicity, country of origin, faith, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or gender identity. We expect the same from our members.
