Thank you for braving the stormy weather Thursday, October 8th to attend the Annual Membership Meeting and for your participation in the election process.
Your participation and your contribution to your Chamber are needed, encouraged and vital to our mission and, in turn, to our community.
To all the retiring members of the Board of Directors, because of term limits of personal choice, I offer my sincere gratitude for your commitment to growing this Chamber of Commerce and for diligently dedicating your time, talent and your all to give life to the mission of the organization. Your tireless efforts are an expression of how much you care to see our community prosper!
Retiring president Carmen Gutierrez, Vice President Dora Alcala, Secretary Paulo Pacheco, director of Economic Development Sergio Diaz, Director of Membership Reina Diaz, and Director of Health Issues Javier Martinez, I know you will continue to be actively involved because you are caring individuals. The amazing accomplishments under your leadership speak to your dedication. Thank you!
To the new and returning members to the Board of Directors, WELCOME and thank you for your willingness to share your wealth of experience, your many and diverse talents and especially, thank you for your valuable time. I look forward to working with you to make a difference for our membership and for our community.
