WELCOME and THANK YOU! As RECON Nexus continues its second decade of service to the community, we’re proud to introduce Louise McGinnis-Barber, CPSM, who will be assuming the role of Executive Director of RECON. Louise was one of the RECON Bay Area’s founding Board Members in 2010 and has been active ever since. Louise has worked in the A/E/C industry for a variety of firms the past three decades and currently serves as Vice President and Business Development Director for CaliChi Design Group, civil engineers, and in a similar capacity for Kennedy Mann Architecture. Additionally, Louise was recently appointed Economic Development Commissioner for the City of Pacifica, has been an active board member of Fog Fest, RECON, SCUP and I2SL where she serves as a national liaison to other I2SL chapters, in addition to having leadership roles in a number of other community and philanthropic organizations. We welcome Louise in her new leadership role for RECON, while we also express our sincere gratitude to David Conner for his more than 10 years serving as Executive Director at RECON, leading the organization’s expansion from a single Sacramento Chapter to an organization with Chapters now in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley and Honolulu. During the past 10+ years of RECON, the organization’s contributions to various charitable and community organizations has surpassed $150,000, largely driven by David Conner and the founders and board of RECON sharing a passion for RECON having a positive impact on the communities we serve. David will continue to be involved in the organization throughout the transition and into the future. Thank You David and to all of our Members and Sponsors who make it possible. See you at the next event on March 28th! CHAMPAGNE SPONSORS CABERNET SPONSORS IN-KIND SPONSOR MEDIA SPONSOR
