President's Message

I would like to thank the membership of Euzkaldunak, staff, and board of directors for a successful 2016. A special thanks to Annie Gavica and Dan Aizpitarte for the time and commitment to the board over their past terms. I appreciate the opportunity to lead this organization and the confidence in our abilities as a board to retain and grow such a unique culture. I look forward to 2017 and the great board I will be working next to so we can keep the traditions of Euzkaldunak moving forward for many more generations. Congratulations to Johnny Boyd, Ryan Boyd, Alicia Knox, Alicia Lachiondo, and Ricardo Yanci for their election to the board, joining Martin Bilbao, Bryan Day, Joe Lasuen, Sarah Urizar-Smith, and me.
