In April, the Alamo Chapter invited María Dolores Santos, president, Ecuador Chapter, to participate in the Virtual Luncheon Program organized by Robert Licciardi, vice president for programs, Alamo Chapter.
The members of the Ecuador Chapter got the chance to be the first to attend this kind of International Chapter Highlight as part of the Alamo Chapter's agenda.
Santos presented an introduction to the Ecuador Chapter in which she discussed the growth and development of the organization. This is part of an outreach to expand the membership perspective in terms of what other chapters are doing. Santos felt very fortunate to be a part of the event, which was a fantastic networking and online opportunity.
"Thank you very much for this invitation to this first release of International Chapter Highlight,' Santos said. 'This type of opportunity improves the relationship and international cooperation between all of the 141 chapters that make up this great AFCEA family. Greetings from the middle of the world, Quito, Ecuador.' Santos gave a special greeting to Alamo members, Col. Richard Lipsey, USAF (Ret.), chapter president; Bill Robinson, chapter vice president of membership; Licciardi, and all Alamo chapter staff in attendance.
After that, the Alamo Chapter presented a distinguished guest speaker, Col. Roy V. Rockwell, USAF, commander, Space Delta 6. Col. Rockwell discussed the U.S. Space Force Cyberspace Roadmap.
The Ecuador Chapter is strengthening relationship channels with the Alamo Chapter and continues to make history and legacy an important component of chapter development.
Santos received a thank-you letter from the Alamo AFCEA Chapter, extending gratitude for providing an insightful look into AFCEA Ecuador. 'Attendee and sponsor feedback was overwhelmingly positive and reinforced what we knew going into it-that this event would be superb and highly informative for all,' the letter stated.
In April, María Dolores Santos, president, Ecuador Chapter, and Col. Roy V. Rockwell, USAF, commander, Space Delta 6, are guests for the Alamo Chapter's event.
