Introducing Desiree La Maggiore
NFH Field Director

As of May 1, 2017, we have a new part-time staff member.  Her name is Desiree La Maggiore and she is a third-generation cabin owner on Lake Shasta in California. 

Here are some introductory words from Desiree:

"In our increasingly complex world, cabin life remains a timeless, priceless experience I’m compelled to preserve and protect – which is why I am excited to join the NFH team as Field Director, focused on outreach.

"The realization of what the cabin program meant in my life became all too clear during my 25-year career working in high tech. Long periods of office time, marketing and management chores punctuated by mad dashes to the lake house – our cabin. It was a familiar cycle I’d witnessed twice-over. .  ."

NEW! Cabin Outreach Program

NFH leadership voted in May, 2015 to establish the Cabin Outreach Program.

The reasoning was simple. Local cabin owners would contact other local cabin owners so that NFH could learn more about cabins and cabin tracts, far and wide, so that cabin tracts and cabin owners could benefit from the collective, institutional knowledge base within the NFH network.

It’s taken over a year for this vision to coalesce into a plan, and soon the plan will become a reality.

Our new Field Director (applications now closed) will direct this outreach program and will be searching the cabin world for Cabin Outreach volunteers.

Our goal, quite simply, is to grow our cabin owner network so that we can all help each other with our collective experiences.
