Meet CANFP Executive Board Member: Edie Sickman

It is with great pleasure that we introduce the newest member of the Executive Board of CANFP, Edie Sickman. Currently from the San Diego region, the statewide mandate of CANFP will benefit greatly from her experience living and working in both northern and southern California. A graduate of UCLA, with a BA in Economics, her early professional experience was in the corporate world. More recently, she has served as office manager at several parishes in the Dioceses of Sacramento and San Diego, and she is currently applying her administrative skills in service of the University of San Diego.

 _786_https://dev2.canfp.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Edie-Sickman-212x300.jpgEdie recalls her first exposure to CANFP was while serving as a lay counselor at the Sacramento Life Center. “CANFP was invaluable with its resources and supportive information that we provided to the women and men who came to the clinic” As a strong advocate herself for natural family planning, she “appreciated having professional tools to be able to provide to the young women who had never been given an opportunity to learn about their fertility cycle.”

Edie brings a commitment to the core values of CANFP, which find concrete expression in her meticulous attention to detail, fruit of her administrative and human resource experience. Her extensive operational and management skills in such areas as event planning, budgeting, and relationship building, will complement the gifts of her dedicated colleagues on the Board.

The CANFP Board is pleased to welcome Edie to this leadership opportunity in the NFP community of California, and is grateful for her YES to the invitation: “After much prayer and discernment, I am eager to be considered for a CANFP Board position. I am excited to serve and to use the talents and gifts I’ve been given to further CANFP’s mission.”

CANFP provides education programs tailored to the audience, not only on Natural Family Planning, but on the wide variety of topics related to it.

Programs can be continuing education for NFP Professionals, introductory information for a lay audience of youth or adults new to the topic, or specifically tailored to the interests of a professional audience, such as educators, physicians, or clergy. Content is faith based or secular, whichever is suitable for situation.

CANFP offers a variety of resources for those just discovering Natural Family Planning, as well as to meet the varied needs of our CANFP Members. Most resources are available to any visitors to our site. Some resources do ask you to register as a site user in order to access them, others are available only to CANFP Members.

CANFP statewide conferences, regional events offered in collaboration with local partners, events featuring CANFP speakers, or exhbit, as well as other events throughout the state of interest to our NFP community.  Come meet one of our experts at one of these events or book a speaker for your own upcoming event.

CANFP depends on the gifts, talents, and generosity of our members and supporters. The success of our mission depends on the collaboration of our members.
