New Year, New Board and Team! - #LatinaGeeks™


New Year, New Board and Team!

As 2020 came to a close, we can’t say we’ll miss it! Even though 2020 was an interesting year, to say the least, it led to incredible growth and development for #LatinaGeeks. In keeping with our mission to empower and inspire Latinas through the sharing of resources and hosting events, we have expanded our board and volunteer team. With that said, we have an amazing 2021 year planned for our geeky community and would love to introduce you to the people making it happen! 

Our Governing Board is a key part of the organization; members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure the #LatinaGeeks organization has adequate resources to advance its mission. Our board members play an important role as advocates for the nonprofit’s mission. Join me in welcoming our 2021 Governing Board Members!
