Letter from the Chairman

Letter from NACD Northwest Chairman Liane Pelletier

Engaged.  Informed.  Continuous learner.  Critical thinker.  Added value. 

Any Director wants to be viewed as having these attributes.  

These attributes don’t come from thin air, they come from active investment of your time, and NACD is a logical ecosystem in which to invest your time. 

Your NACD membership gives you access to nonstop online resources, national conferences and chapter level programming. The role of a Director takes courage and capacity and the programming of NACD NW aims to build both.

The chapter board has strategically evolved its approach to programming, and we hope you see evidence of that, and provide chapter board directors feedback as you engage with us this coming year. We further hope you find our networking and educational events enrich your life as Director.

- Liane Pelletier, Chairman, NACD Northwest Chapter
