Guiding the way for CNPS

Committed to the cause

CNPS board members come from diverse backgrounds in science, law, accounting, small business, and more. The common thread: a deep commitment to the viability of the CNPS mission. We thank each of them for their tremendous leadership and encourage others to consider getting involved.
