Greetings from the PTNPA Team! As we hope you know, the PTNPA is constantly striving to best meet the needs of you - our valued Members. For the past 7 years, Trish Schechtman, has been an important part of our team and one who has connected with many of you during her time with the PTNPA. At the end of July, Trish will be departing the PTNPA to pursue a once in a lifetime opportunity. As much as we place tremendous value on her skills, dedication and the countless contributions Trish has made to the PTNPA we wouldn't ever want to keep her from taking on her next challenge! I know you will join me in thanking Trish for her incredible service to the PTNPA and wishing her all the very best - now and as she embarks on the next part of her professional journey.

As is the case with all businesses - with change comes opportunity. This means that the PTNPA Team make-up and organizational structure has been carefully evaluated by the PTNPA Board of Directors and will be evolving in the coming weeks. In that spirit, I'm thrilled to introduce and welcome our newest Team Member Pamela Larson - who will serve as our Office and Operations Manager. Pamela's bio briefly tells the story of her professional experiences and the skills, insights and energy that she now brings to the PTNPA. Pamela can be reached at - and I hope you will take a moment to welcome her and introduce yourselves!

The more we hear from all of you - the better we can accomplish our mission of being "The Voice of America's Nut Industry" - so please be in touch with me and the other wonderful PTNPA team members who will continue on in their current roles: Gretchen Clark/Communications and Event Specialist ( and Corinne Kelleher/Ops Support Specialist ( We will be adding a "Membership Services Manager" to the PTNPA team as quickly as possible and will communicate all updates with you.

Our ongoing thanks for the opportunity to be your PTNPA Team.

Jeannie Shaughnessy, Executive Director
