New President and Changes to the PACG Board
I am honored to have been elected by the PACG Board of Directors for the position of President. I have been a member of PACG since 2008 and a Board member since 2019, so I am familiar with the organization.
Other changes to the Board include Allison Ambrose moving into the position of Vice President. We certainly appreciate her guidance for the past few years, especially during the pandemic. I am pleased that she will remain involved, initially to help me with the transition to president.
Margie Mejia-Caraballo will be stepping down from the Board. We are grateful for her ongoing participation with PACG over the past years.
For those of you who don't know me, I have been the Secretary for NAACP Davenport for three years. I am the Environmental Climate Justice committee Chair for our local NAACP branch. Our committee worked closely with PACG's Environmental forum for the past couple of years. I am learning so much about Environmental issues working with these people. I hope to encourage others to get involved with local and national environmental issues and injustice that affect people of color.
My husband, Michael, and I have six children and nine grandchildren. I enjoy exercising, traveling, and spending time with my family.
My primary goal is to increase diversity in our organization, and to get more young people involved in PACG. How can we achieve this together? I will share other goals with you throughout the year.
Glenda Guster, President
