Hello FAR-West Community!
I write today on behalf of the entire Board of Directors of FAR-West to announce some very exciting news!
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Nancy Berk will be our Conference Director for FAR-West’s 2023 Conference at Woodland Hills, California, October 12-15! Let me introduce Nancy.
Nancy Berk recently joined FAR-West as the 2023 Conference Director, and brings over 30 years of experience in planning and execution of medium to large complex programs in healthcare, non-profits, technology, and marketing organizations. With a focus on service to humanity, influencing change in a diverse world both globally and in community, she is an educator and facilitator, specializing in delivering actionable insights, efficiency and executing programs and events that are culturally relevant, meaningful and focused on the experience of the participant. Engaging teams at all levels of an organization to work collaboratively, she has successfully developed and managed events and solutions for both global and domestic projects.
Upbeat and laidback with a positive spirit, Nancy’s greatest passions are artistic expression and the outdoors. A lover of life, the arts and culture, she loves to work with different art mediums, sing/play music, and has been involved in the folk music community for over 40 years. As an avid outdoors person, she loves organic gardening, kayaking, camping and Pickleball, and has taught Outdoor Leader skills and Leave No Trace. She worked and lived in the National Parks, lived in Nepal for a year where she studied music and dance, then traced the footsteps of Buddha through India. With a passport that is always current, she takes every opportunity to experience the world through diverse cultures.
Please join me in welcoming Nancy!
