NSHMBA San Antonio welcome letter 2015
embrace 2015, I am excited to see what the future holds, especially for the
NSHMBA San Antonio chapter.
NSHMBA has evolved
in front of our eyes, from just a few founding individuals to 41 chapters in the
U.S. and Puerto Rico. This year, 2015, our organization is about to embark in a
transformation to be the leading catalyst for Hispanics achievement by 2025.
Our core purpose remains constant: Empower Hispanic business professionals to
achieve their full educational, economic and social potential, make and immediate impact on the
development and visibility of Hispanic professionals, MBAs, students, sponsors
and partners, and connecting people among our sponsors, partners, members and
Our San Antonio chapter has taken the road less traveled in
the last few years. Our amazing talented team in conjunction with our
volunteers, members, sponsors and partners have been able to put in place great
ideas, projects and initiatives that turned around our chapter from our
downturn in 2011 to today’s success.
That is the result of who we are and how
we do everything. We are a team of Exceptional People, and we
do things with an exemplary powerful collaboration.
2014 was a year of great achievements for
our chapter, such as the 2013 chapter of the year, participation at NSHMBA's Academy
panel for ERGs best practices, the 3rd edition of the C-Suite Think Tank featuring our very
own Rosanna Durruthy, the NSHMBA Charity Open wonderful execution, our
career fair with State Farm workshop, and our partnership with Tesoro for a
successful Women In Leadership, showcasing
Tesoro's CEO, Greg Goff and Mariela Dabbah's Red Show Movement with an
amazing panel of women Business leaders.
Today, I Welcome
you to 2015, year in
which I invite every one of you to continue in our wonderful journey of
growth and innovation. A journey to bring who we are, and
put forward our fullest potential. The success of our chapter is a
reflection of each and every one of US. Therefore, we must get
together and put the best of ALL of us to take OUR San
Antonio chapter to the forefront of our community, stakeholders and partners
