Posted April 1, 2014 07:42 PM by Ken Kornberg    

Last week Martha announced to the Board her decision to resign from her role as Executive Director. Kindly, she has agreed to stay on until we find a replacement. We have been so very fortunate to have Martha in this position for so many years. With her help, we have located an excellent replacement candidate, Rene Peraza. Rene has worked with Martha for several years providing graphics support for our chapter. He has his own design practice, in which he uses the same accounting software as the chapter. He is very personable and comfortable speaking to gatherings. For these and other reasons, we feel that Rene would be able to transition smoothly and quickly take over critical responsibilities.
