Fil- Am of SCV revealed their 2022 Board Of Directors and Board of Trustees, including their new board president.
Marie Urquidi was elected to lead the board through 2022.
Urquidi was initially introduced to Fil-Am when she responded to a Facebook posting of Fil-Am’s free Tagalog class. She enrolled herself and her children for the five weeks Tagalog class. Thereafter, she enrolled her children to Fil-Am’s Summer Cultural Dance class, who had their dance recital at our Cultural Festival event.
It is at these classes that Urquidi recognized the importance of acclimating herself and her family to her Filipino heritage even deeper.
So when the opportunity presented her with becoming part of the 2021 Board, she joined. The short time she was a Director, she exhibited a lot of enthusiasm and leadership and brought a lot of creative and innovative ideas for promoting the objectives of the association and embracing the mission of Fil-Am of SCV.
And it is because of her positive attitude, her vision and her understanding of Fil-Am’s culture, that ultimately made her the deserving President who will carry Fil-Am of SCV’s legacy.
