ANA’s Hostess With The Mostest, ANA Board member Robin Spencer, has stepped down from the Board to devote more time to her new business venture, PIG OUT – a personal shopping service delivering the best and most local of groceries – and actually have a life again.
Fortunately for ANA and the rest of us, Robin will be continuing as Chair of Social and Special Events. So our monthly Meet&Greets, with their ever-changing locations, member-hosts, themes, special events and gurests, will continue under her supervision, along the our Annual Dinner Dance and the other social activities that get us all together and keep us connected.
The Board will miss Robin at our regular meetings, but is delighted that she’ll be continuing to do what she does best – organize and entertain.
Our Acta Constitutiva (Constitution) provides for the Board to fill a temporary vacancy like this for the remainder of the current term, and we are pleased to welcome Michael Lindner to the Board, with special focus on Full Member Buildings and Fundraising.
Michael will be working closely Sylvia Toy, our Membership Chair, as we gear up for the Fall and Membership Outreach and Renewal.
A relative newcomer to Amapas, Michael is the Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder of Hospicio Vallarta, a new home healthcare company that emphasizes palliative and hospice care here in the Banderas Bay area. In addition, he is the Executive Director of the Richard Allen Shapiro Institute for Palliative Care Studies. As an active member of the fabric of Puerto Vallarta, he volunteers at the SPCA and Esperanza de la Familia. In addition, as a classically-trained musician, he maintains an active concert schedule of organ and harpsichord concerts.
