Phinney Neighborhood Association

Executive Director


The Phinney Neighborhood Association is seeking applications for the position of Executive Director. Under the direction and guidance of the Board of Directors, the Executive Director is responsible for the management of the Phinney Neighborhood Association, which is committed to building, engaging and supporting our diverse community through programs, services, and activities that connect neighbors and foster civic engagement.


Headquartered in a former elementary school (which is also on the National Register of Historic Places), the PNA has developed over the last 40 years into an active community-focused 501(c)(3) organization that not only serves as a community hub of the Phinney Ridge/Greenwood neighborhoods of North Seattle, but also offers programs and activities that reach far beyond the immediate neighborhood. The PNA serves over 27,000 people each year, has approximately 85 full- and part-time staff, relies upon more than 1,700 volunteers, and has an annual budget of $3.3 million.

The PNA programs are housed at five different sites located in the Phinney Ridge, Greenwood, and Ballard neighborhoods. Current programs include four preschool cooperatives, a licensed preschool and school age program at Whittier Elementary School, a hot meal program, programs for seniors (including the Greenwood Senior Center, PNA Village, and a computer lab), an art gallery, a tool and seed lending library, a community education program, a business membership program, family and individual memberships, room rentals, and countless special events that bring friends and neighbors together. The PNA co-sponsors a farmers market and weekly Contra dancing and folk music concerts.

The PNA is engaged in an intentional and ongoing process to evaluate and ensure equity, diversity, and inclusion in all of its programs and practices.
