ENformer- December 2022
Fiscal Year 2022 Year-End Sales Recap
As we turn the page on a new fiscal year, here is a look back on EN’s retail operations during fiscal year 2022. There were many challenges for nonprofit organizations and retailers this year. Nationwide labor shortages, global supply chain disruptions, and rising gas prices were just some of the obstacles Eastern National staff had to navigate.

Farewell to Monique
The EN team expresses gratitude to Monique VanLandingham, WASO Program Manager for Cooperating Associations & Partnerships, Interpretation, Education, and Volunteers, for more than ten years of dedication to the National Park Service, and her for support of Eastern National and cooperating associations. Monique transitioned from the National Park Service to the private sector earlier this month. Over her 10 years of service, Monique was a strong supporter of cooperating associations and their educational missions.
