Opportunity to Join our Board
After completing three years supporting the NWA Hispanic Leadership Council, Lucero Martinez, Ana Aguayo, and Greg Fess are retiring from the Board of Directors. The NWA HLC appreciates all the contributions these three outstanding leaders have made over the past years and look forward to their involvement in other projects with the NWA HLC and the NWA community.
With their departure the group is looking for leaders interested to continue growing the NWA HLC and serving the organization by joining the Board of Directors.
