I was introduced to IRWA, when a Law firm I worked with invited me to a Chapter 57 meeting. I immediately recognized this was a fun chapter and asked to come back. I volunteered to become the environmental chair and the next thing I knew I was asked to be Secretary. I am excited to be the incoming President of Chapter 57, the fun chapter.
These are interesting times, navigating COVID restrictions, fear, and new normal. I look forward to the opportunity and challenges of bringing us back together in person for meetings and more.
I am excited to work with our new chapter leaders including Hector Casillas, President-Elect, Robbie Hechanova, Treasurer, and Peggy Barnes, Secretary and trusted advisor. I also look forward to working with our many past leaders and chapter members. My main goal will be to coordinate a return to normal, where everyone feels comfortable. I want to create an environment at these meetings that cultivates fun. Also, we will focus on membership and education. I will work with Griffin Wayne and Kelley Kelley…
Upcoming events include the Region 1 Fall Forum, Tri-Chapter, and Spring Forum. The Fall Forum is a meeting of new Presidents and Vice Presidents from each of Region 1’s 13 chapters, as well as a couple of folks from HQ. It is scheduled for October 15th. The Tri-Chapter is the annual holiday meeting with Chapters 1, 67, and 57 scheduled for December 9th and always a lot of fun. The Spring Forum has not been planned and Chapter 57 is considering hosting it. I hope y’all join us and see what the “new normal” will look like.
