Dear LIDERAMOS Friends,
As you may know, earlier this year we announced the selection of Angela Mictlanxochitl Anderson Guerrero, PHD, MPP, to serve as the inaugural Executive Director.
With over 25 years of experience in community engagement, policy, research, and guiding strategic change; as well as being a specialist in the effective communication of pluralities of knowledge across cultural and organizational borders, Dr. Anderson Guerrero brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to LIDERAMOS.
Now that the onboarding process has concluded, Angela’s has been hard at work communicating with funders, community leaders and other constituents. She’s also been working on forthcoming webinars, helping communities around the country who are interested in launching leadership programs, updating the organization’s website, and of course on the annual LIDERAMOS National Symposium, which is being held in San Antonio, at the Estancia del Norte – Tapestry Collection by Hilton, October 19th to 22nd. Lots going on for sure.
As the next phase of LIDERAMOS continues, the Board of Directors would like to publicly thank once again, Dr. Juana Bordas for her leadership, dedication and enormous commitment to the Latino community.
More importantly, for her vision in creating LIDERAMOS and leading it for five years! With LIDERAMOS, Dr. Bordas has left a legacy of leadership that will continue for decades to come as more and more communities across the United States implement Latino leadership programs using the model and curriculum created by Dr. Bordas and generously donated to LIDERAMOS.
Thank you for your support of LIDERAMOS and we look forward to seeing all of you in San Antonio at the Annual Symposium!
On behalf of the LIDERAMOS Board of Directors
Carlos F. Orta, Board Chair
