Board Of Directors

We have Always have room for more... and our board is full at the moment!

What a gift! We are currently 12 strong on the Board, thanks to all who have stepped up to be a part of it all. We recruited 8 new board members this winter, and are in the process of onboarding and organizing ourselves. If you'd like to learn  more about the board or would like to volunteer to help PNODN , please reach out to the current board members about their role and contact Faith  at when you are ready to step up and volunteer. Our new board began January 2024.

We are currently seeking people to energize the following roles:

    Treasurer - This is a special and needed role! The Treasurer oversees the money we raise through membership & events to support the organization in recruiting presenters and broadening the OD conversation. Please email for any questions!

    We believe in the power of our collective effort! If you feel called to help elevate OD, join us! You are ideal for a spot on the board if you-

    • Are passionate about bringing OD perspectives and techniques to organizations you work with and work for.
    • Want a chance to hone some new skills in a supportive group of other OD professionals.
    • See an unmet need in the organization and are willing to step up and fill it.
    • Can commit to attending monthly programs and board meetings, and are a member in good standing (or can be!).
    • Want to get lots of great opportunities to learn by attending FREE PNODN events for the length of your term!

    We will also be seeking volunteers who would like to be a part of growing PNODN for the future, but with less commitment than a Board role. Please contact Rick Gage, our Directory of Community at to ask about volunteer opportunities!

    Rick Gage - Since June 2020 I’ve been holding the question “what is the invitation of these times?” The answer that has emerged for me is “Connectedness”. For more than a decade now Compassion & Mindfulness @ Work have been my professional passions.

    There is just too much suffering in the workplace. It takes a massive toll on employees and their families. And the cost of lost opportunities for companies and organizations is huge. And there is tremendous upside for organizations that pay attention to community engagement, agency for every participant, stewardship of resources, and the fabric of workplace culture.

    For most of my career I was a line manager in sales and consulting organizations within very large companies serving large organization clients. OD was something I lived but not something I formally studied. Now, it is my privilege as a facilitator, coach and consultant to work with high impact organizations on engagement, leadership, team connectedness and organization culture.

    Beyond my work and professional passions, my family – particularly seven grandchildren are the beating heart of my life. They are my teachers.

    Emily Logan is an organization development and change management consultant,  currently working at NOBL (no-bell), a small firm determined to help companies rethink change so they are driving real behavior change, learning better ways of engaging across teams and across levels of hierarchy, and becoming better equipped for the changes they will inevitably face in the future.

    Emily has a controversial belief (a few, actually) that many change management methodologies, firms, and tools are insufficient (and sometimes even damaging) for how modern companies operate. Whether implementing a new system internally or changing the way teams collaborate to enable a more modern operating model, it is a complex challenge that requires a new way of thinking about people, teams, processes, and company culture. Emily believes experimentation and sensing & responding are key change skills.

    In her free time, Emily plays music with various bands and friends in the Seattle area. She lives in Everett with her two cats Newt and Fox Mulder.
