Communication Intern

The Board of Directors has recently hired a summer intern to help increase communications with Members. Our summer intern, Joel, a student at PLU, will be calling Members and asking for email addresses.  These email addresses will be added and compiled to create a PL&W Members distribution list and will be used to notify Members of any upcoming events and promotions. 

If you were not contacted but would like to be added to the email distribution list, please call us at (253) 531-5666 and ask for Joel.

*PL&W will only use your information for communication purposes and will never sell or distribute your information externally.*
