The National Committee

All members of the committee, subcommittees and project organisers are volunteers who donate their time, skills, and energy to further the mission of the association and to try and make our community better for all of us.

David Garland
President, Media & Interfaith Officer
David is the founder of PAN Inc. He started the public full moon circles in Sydney's Seven Hills that have run continuously since 1997. Although raised a Roman Catholic and an altar boy at the Church until age 14, he found that, after a discussion with the priest about graven images and idol worship, this was not the place for him.

His Italian Grandmother, who read playing cards, first sparked his interest in Tarot and things magickal. David has been practising earth-based magick since 1986, as a healer, Tarot reader, and psychic, and leading to his formal Gardnerian Wiccan training.

David has been President of PAN since he founded it in 1997.

Cassandra Le Grand
Secretary
Cassie has been a part of the PAN Committee for many years and have been Secretary for quite a few of them.

Her personal motto is that “Knowledge is Power” for the more knowledge you have the more power you have over your own life to make choices and embrace opportunities.

Cassie has been the secretary of the Association since the 2005.

They were raised a Christian, however they never found their spiritual belonging in Christianity. From a young age Charli has found themselves attracted towards witchcraft. Charli has a keen interest in history (especially that of various pagan beliefs and cultures) and is somewhat of an activist for people with a disability and the LGBTQI community.
