Nancy Hatch

Nancy has been active in parts of the Sierra Club's mission her whole life. Growing up, she spent a lot of time "exploring and enjoying the planet." She regularly went camping, hiking, backpacking, and exploring with her family, and developed a love of the outdoors. As an adult, Nancy has continued to enjoy the great outdoors and has become active with the "protect the planet" part of the Sierra Club's mission.

After moving to Portland in 2001, Nancy first became active with the Columbia Singles Group and then started volunteering with the Building Environmental Communities campaign. She was elected to the Columbia Group's Executive Committee in 2005 and 2007. For the past year Nancy has been the Columbia Group's Political Committee chair.
