Dear AGA Albuquerque,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 Chapter Program year, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new members and a big thank you to our returning members for their dedicated support and advocacy over the years. This year has been unlike anything we have ever experienced, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all and I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones doing well and staying safe.

As a member of the AGA- Albuquerque Chapter for the past four years, it is with great excitement that I reflect on all the amazing experiences AGA has offered me. I have had the privilege of serving in various capacities on the CEC, participated in community networking events along with impactful mentoring experiences. Now as your 2020-2021 Chapter President, I would like to thank you for the honor of allowing me to serve you and advance the AGA Albuquerque Chapter. I am committed to serve as your voice for our AGA Albuquerque chapter, collaborating with my fellow board members and working alongside dedicated community leaders within our Chapter CEC.

Our objectives and vision for the 2020-2021 chapter year are to continue to provide an elevated level of education, philanthropy, community engagement, networking and commitment to engage all members especially during these unprecedented times. Making the decision to postpone our 2020 PDT was critical to the safety of us all, we understand that this may have impacted our members in meeting their required education hours along with budgeted funds for training and education opportunities however your safety was our priority.

We have worked to provide you this year’s program and trainings within a virtual environment. We are dedicated to furthering our CGFM candidates by providing virtual exam resources, networking/engagement opportunities, with the anticipation of celebrating new CGFM members this program year. I would like to encourage you to help grow our chapter by inviting friends and/or colleagues to join us virtually for one of our education sessions and/or community service opportunities.

As your Chapter President, I look forward to expanding our presence, voice and community engagement through the growth of our AGA Chapter membership. Cheers to another successful year!

Thank you and be well!
