Program Committee Member

Be a part the team that organizes native plant programs for CNPS members and the general public. The team brainstorms ideas for speakers, reaches out to them and drafts talk descriptions and speaker bios. Our talks are usually at the Los Altos Library and we work with the library to arrange the dates and room setup. The team also sends out program descriptions and bios to the library, prepares Chapter publicity, and arranges honoraria and speaker dinners.

A committee of four or five people will ensure this job is (at most) a two to three hour per month commitment. Experienced former program committee members will mentor you, so it will be easy to get started. This is a great job if you would like to educate the public about native plants. It can be done mostly via email and phone. For more information about this position please contact Madeline Morrow at This email address is being protected from spambots.
