Pull-thru Network Professional Members and Advisors

Professional Advisors are professional members who have been selected by the PTN Board of Directors and have agreed to support the PTN mission by speaking at PTN conferences, writing articles for PTN publications, referring families to the PTN, etc.  Professional Advisors may choose to become a member of PTN’s Facebook group, but must abide by PTN’s confidentiality and privacy policies. Professional Advisors serve three-year terms.

Professional Members have joined the PTN as either individual professional members or institutional members.  Professional Members have access to PTN publications and resources, but do not have access to member-to-member support (i.e., forums, chats, member referrals, etc.).  They are not eligible to vote in elections or hold an office.  The PTN does not officially endorse these professionals, but provide this information to members as a courtesy.
