NSHMBA Kicks Off the Year in San Antonio!

Beginning on January 17, San Antonio played host for the NSHMBA kick-off weekend! 

This big, three-in-one event kicked off with our inaugural Multicultural and Multigenerational Forum, which featured diversity experts in a discussion of the challenges and benefits of working in a multicultural and multigenerational environment. 

The well-attended sessions were led by speakers including Audra Bohannon, Principal, Global Novations-A Korn/Ferry International Company; Isaias Zamarripa, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Darden; and Luisa Kurtz, Vice President, Global Resources and Solutions Delivery, Global Novations-A Korn/Ferry International Company.

Following these informative sessions, NSHMBA officially launched our 25th anniversary year
with our kick-off event.  This event started with some true NSHMBA flavor with entertainment from the Ballet Folklorico and mariachi musicians.

Following this entertainment, the gathered crowd was ready to hear from NSHMBA leaders including NSHMBA Chief Executive Officer Manny Gonzalez and San Antonio Chapter President Miguel Aguliar.  One of the highlights of the event was remarks from San Antonio Mayor, the Honorable Julian Castro, who spoke to the engaged crowd about the importance organizations like NSHMBA play in the San Antonio community.  Remarks from speakers were followed by a rendition of "Happy Birthday” in recognition of NSHMBA’s 25th anniversary year.

Following the kick off was a full day of professional development for NSHMBA chapter officers.  As a part of the NSHMBA U program, officers enjoyed sessions dedicated to their chapter development, which were led by NSHMBA National Office staff and professional development speakers.
