2023 Annual Membership Meeting Highlights Successes Made Possible By You

On Saturday, April 29, PCTA staff, board members, volunteers, and an audience from the Pacific Crest Trail community gathered at the Sierra 2 Center in Sacramento, California for this year’s Annual Membership Meeting. At the meeting, PCTA Acting Executive Director and CEO Megan Wargo, Board Chair Kevin Bacon, and U.S. Forest Service PCT Administrator Lindsey Steinwachs—along with other leadership and staff—presented highlights and successes from 2022 that were made possible by the many contributions of time and resources from everyone in the community. The speakers also presented financial numbers and updates on PCTA strategic planning and the process for selecting a permanent Executive Director and CEO.
