The Hispanic League's 24th Annual Meeting took place Thursday, January 26th at Allegacy Federal Credit Union. The atmosphere was full of energy as community stakeholders had an opportunity to network and meet other Hispanic League members. New connections were made among past Hispanic League founders/members and the new 2017 Board of Directors, and new League members.
The evening began with half an hour of mingling while enjoying light hors d'ouvres and beverages. Our guests also had an opportunity to take pictures for the Hispanic League's Spanish Nite Virtual Raffle. Donations were also accepted for the Beating Hearts Zumbathon® held on February 24.
Approximately around 6:30p.m. the program began. Executive Director, Mari Jo Turner, raised a toast to celebrate the beginning of our 25th Anniversary year. The Annual Meeting program covered items such as: introduction of 2017 Board Members, new staff members, highlights and accomplishments from 2016, the release of our annual report for 2016, strategic goals for 2017, and 25th Anniversary updates.
