LCS News Release
January 28, 2010
The Lake Chapala Society board has now been in office for over three weeks and is making great progress in taking LCS into the future. At our board meeting last week, we adopted the first phase of our new governance structure and appointed Terry Vidal as LCS’ first Executive Director. Terry, with the help of our volunteers, will soon be defining an operational structure headed by volunteer coordinators to manage the day to day operations. Members will see little, if any, change in services provided.
The board will oversee the Executive Director and ensure effective operations. More importantly, the Board will be concentrating on establishing policy, developing long range, strategic and annual plans, and fundraising. We will be seeking input from not only current and former LCS members, but the larger community of expats, nationals, business and government interests to help us understand how we can provide the best services possible.
We want to ensure effective communications at LCS beginning with this message. You will be receiving regular emails from your Board and the Executive Director.
There will be a “Member’s Only” Kickoff event on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7th, between 2 PM and 4 PM, to meet and greet each other and the new Board.
We think you will like the new LCS, and hope you will take part in helping us plan for the future. We welcome your input!
