Join our Board
Citizens Awareness Network (CAN) is growing our board of directors. As you are well aware, CAN is a grassroots environmental organization working to end the use of unaffordable and dangerous nuclear power in the Northeast. CAN has successfully been an integral player in empowering communities to take action, has helped transform debates over energy, pollution and environmental justice and has helped reduce New England’s dependence on nuclear power by a significant percentage. Currently CAN is working on the closure of Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant in Vernon, Vermont and is engaging New England communities in the transition to renewable energy sources. You can learn more on the website: www.nukebusters.org.
If you would like to join the board of this vibrant organization at a pivotal moment in our ever-evolving mission, please contact us if you have finance skills, strategic planning skills, development skills, general non-profit board experience or have passion for an issue that is related to social justice or the environment.
