Dear LAFACE family,

Happy 4th of July weekend! I am grateful for this opportunity to serve as your President. I also look forward to representing LAFACE, working with LAFACE Board Officers and Advisers, and members in achieving our goals for 2022-2024.

First, I would like to thank the 2020-2022 LAFACE Board for their hard work and dedication the past two years during an unprecedented time of COVID outbreak. Thank you to Immediate Past President Jing Vida and 21 other past presidents who have paved the way for me!

I would like to welcome and introduce my team, your 2022-2024 LAFACE Board and Advisers.
1st Vice President Ellen Linaac
2nd Vice President Lolita Mejia
3rd Vice President Rea Lazo
Recording Secretary Jessica Domanay
Corresponding Secretary Marie Saraos
Treasurer Lilibeth Guazon
Assistant Treasurer Michelle Dulalia
Auditor Jinky Santiago
Public Relations Officer Jamie Francisco
Retiree Member Officer Linda Granados
Adviser Jing Vida
Adviser Joan Tagle
Adviser Liz Lee
Adviser Susana Reyes

Please check out the LAFACE website and get to know them. Say “hi” or “hello” when you see them and introduce yourself. Together we thank you and look forward to serving our organization and your needs.

Looking ahead, we plan to celebrate our 40th anniversary combined with our celebration of the Filipino American Heritage Month in October! As we strive to bring in more seminars and webinars to prepare you for your next promotion, to provide you tips and insights on financial wellness, we also aim to increase membership by two folds, from 400s to 800s, by 2024.

In the next couple of weeks, you will see a “looking ahead” section in the LAFACE website to give you an opportunity to plan ahead, stay engaged, and participate. Mark your calendars! Let’s collaborate! Reach out to the Officer Chair of the event and volunteer if you can.

I joined LAFACE in 2019. Through LAFACE, I have gained valuable information and attended training sessions that have furthered my career. I have also built an incredible network of friends in departments throughout the City. I hope that LAFACE can also provide you with connections and contribute to your ascension through the City ranks. I hope to see you in our future events, and I look forward to these opportunities to meet you and get to know you better!
