About Us

Columbia Willamette Compensation Group (CWCG) is a Local Network affiliate of WorldatWork.  We were established in 1990 for the purpose of promoting excellence and innovation for compensation and benefits professionals in Oregon and Southwest Washington, and this is still true today.  Our goal is to engage our members by providing the latest in industry resources, professional development, and a place to network.

CWCG provides a forum for members to share progressive solutions to today’s compensation and benefits challenges. We offer courses and workshops designed to educate and inform you; keep you current on relevant hot topics, and total rewards trends and practices. CWCG also gives back to the community through our scholarship program for professionals and students who are pursuing further education in compensation and benefits.

Scholarships

CWCG awards academic and professional scholarships annually in September.  The application process begins in March and closes in early June.  For exact dates and forms, please see the March CWCG newsletter.  Once the application process closes, the CWCG Scholarship Committee reviews applications and notifies applicants of their decision.  CWCG encourages its members and students to further their education, ensuring excellence within the professional field. 

Community Involvement

Each year, the CWCG Speakers Bureau presents educational programs on the Total Rewards profession to local universities and organizations.  Students receive information that helps them prepare for their professional careers.  In addition, CWCG offers academic and professional scholarships annually to assist individuals with completing their educational goals. CWCG also holds a cloths drive in September on behalf of Dress for Success and a toy drive each December to support our community.
