President Donna Serrano shared the accomplishments of last year’s members. We grew our membership by 38%, we had great speakers, and fun events like Block Kids (who won Regional!) She personally thanked each member for her development as a Leader and for a memorable year.
Pat McDonald, CBT, CCA, CIT, presided over the Installation Ceremony. With the theme being “Denim and Diamonds”, she installed each new board member sharing why each member was committed to the organization and what they intend to bring to NAWIC. The following are the new Board Members: President: Shawna Alvarado, CBT, CIT; Vice President: Cynthia Castellano; Treasurer: Laura Grabar; Secretary: Kara Hermann; Board of Directors: Pat Machado, CIT, Alpana Shah, Judy Wagner, CIT, Melissa Cochran
The ceremony completed with A NAWIC tradition of passing of the gavel from the most senior past president to the new and incoming president. It was inspiring to see the past leadership that brought us to where we are today and Shawna stepping into the future, excited about the 2017-2018 NAWIC year.
