Erin Foote Morgan's work at FM Civic is built on a 20-year career of leadership in policy development, strategic and crisis communications, and civic engagement initiatives.

Originally from Anchorage, Alaska, Erin obtained a bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of Oregon, then a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri. She moved to Bend in 2004 where she worked as a journalist covering land-use and growth issues facing rural and urban communities of the East Cascades.


In 2013, she founded a political consulting and strategic communications firm supporting candidate and ballot measure campaigns in Oregon. She became executive director of Bend 2030 in 2015, leading housing and transportation civic engagement projects and coalitions throughout the region. In 2018, she was appointed Bend Director of Hubbell Communications, Oregon's premier public affairs firm. She was promoted to Managing Director of the firm two years later, overseeing projects throughout the Northwest and serving as executive director of the Chronic Disease Coalition, a national policy advocacy group.

Erin's previous partnerships and clients span government agencies and taxing districts, regional civic and economic development organizations, nonprofits across the country, and international and Fortune 500 companies.


She has led public affairs, public relations, crisis response, and public engagement projects in diverse sectors including land-use, housing, transportation, healthcare, higher education, natural resources, environmental protections, renewable energy, and economic development.

Now, at FM Civic, Erin and her expert team members provide tailor-made solutions for government, business, nonprofit and legal professionals whose work will shape our region for generations to come.
