Board of director VOLUNTEERS

The association is guided by a board of volunteer members and supported by special committees who help manage and sustain our member offering. We believe this gives the PBNA a unique ability to provide the residents of Palmetto Bluff an avenue for transparency as well as an organized voice in its future development.
