Call for Board Members 2023
The Board of Directors is responsible for making all the good things happen that you enjoy as a PFN member. We organize meetings, outings and programs; and carry out advocacy to protect the environment that we love.
Are you interested in helping to manage the PFN as it faces the challenges of the next year, which include:
- a return to live services after the COVID-19 epidemic fades;
- continuing our transition to the world of digital communications;
- advocating to protect our natural environment in the face of pressures from development and climate
- involving more young people in PFN objectives and activities.
If so, the Board is looking for new members to join our group of volunteers committed to the PFN. We are anticipating two vacancies this year and would like to bring the Board up to full complement.
If you are interested, please contact Ted Vale, the Chair of the Nominating Committee at [email protected]

I'm always looking for more volunteers so contact me if you are interested. Training is
