In just one month, you and I will be electing a new Board of Directors and voting on Bylaw Revisions. Please save the date – October 8, 2015 at 7 p.m. at Silver Eagle Distributors to voice your vote and take an active role in your Del Rio Hispanic Chamber.
We will have a fun activity to network as ballots are being tabulated. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the dedication and loyalty of current board members who have reached term limits and will be off the board for at least 1 year.
The list includes Vice President Dora Alcala, Parliamentarian Al Cervantes, Director Sergio Diaz, and Secretary Paulo Pacheco. These four individuals have served in various capacities and have been directly responsible for setting our direction of growth and establishing a strong and diverse board. It has been an honor and privilege for me to have served with them for the past six years and I thank them for allowing me to complete my term as President.
We have had so many wonderful board members throughout the years, and I thank each of you for accepting the challenge and making a difference. To all our present and previous board members – know that you make a difference.
Look around and feel proud of what we all have accomplished with the support of our wonderful membership. I have also reached term limits and will miss the daily interaction with you. However I will remain in support of the new board and look forward to helping our community continue to grow.
I treasure the fond memories of all our activities and our members who always responded positively on my calls for help.
God bless all. Carmen Gutierrez
