From the Chapter President

Hola Familia!

As our 2016-2017 fiscal year is well underway, the e-board has been working for the past few months in planning out ways to not only revive the chapter, but provide the members with better opportunities to network and develop as professionals and leaders in their careers. They have also been working closely within our communities throughout Central Florida through volunteering, charitable events, and STEM outreach

I want to thank all of you who have showed support as we find new ways to grow our chapter once again. A special thanks to Esteban Guerra who has led us for the past few months in not only getting the chapter off to a great start, but in assuring that it continues once he leaves to pursue a new career opportunity. Join me in congratulating and wishing him the best of luck.

As I take on the responsibility as President, I want to incorporate newer and better ways to serve you, the members. I welcome any ideas and feedback that will contribute not only in growing our SHPE Central Florida familia, but ourselves as professionals.

On behalf of the E-board and myself, we invite you all to take part in our upcoming events and to stay connected via our newsletter and all our other forms of communication that can be found at the bottom of all our newsletters.

All the best,

Andres Vargas
President ’16-’17
