Making an impact by serving on the Board of Directors for Washington’s National Park Fund

I had been interested in joining a non-profit board for a few years, as a way to get more involved in the nonprofit sector and give back through my expertise in marketing. I was also interested in diversifying my peer group to gain a different perspective on civic leadership, business, and life.

 LT sends a quarterly newsletter with openings for board members. In one newsletter, it advertised an opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors of Washington’s National Park Fund (WNPF). Coincidentally, WNPF’s Vice President is also an LT alum. I jumped at the opportunity and contacted the organization for more information.

 Today, I am honored to serve on WNPF’s board, leveraging my leadership and marketing skills to help further the organization’s mission, which is to raise private support to deepen the public’s love for, understanding of, and experiences in Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks.
