Formed in 1984 under ORS Chapter 190, the Oregon Regional Councils Association (ORCA) promotes cooperation among levels of government.

The multi-jurisdictional councils are voluntary associa­tions cooperating on issues and problems which cross city, county, and in some cases, state boundaries. The association provides a forum for exchanging and discussing common issues.
