It’s time again for the Long Beach Heritage Annual Meeting!  This year the meeting will be held on Sunday, July 31 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Bembridge House in Pepper Tree Court. The Board Development Committee is presenting this slate of nominees for officers and board members for the 2022 – 2023 Board Elections:
  • President – Chris Hogan
  • President Emeritus – Stan Poe
  • Secretary – Steve Gillis-Moore
  • Treasurer – Bette McKinney
  • VP Bembridge House – Sheila Gibbons
  • VP Education – Joe Mello
  • VP Membership – Kim Campanelli
  • VP Advocacy – Louise Ivers
  • VP Funding Activities – Jacqueline Padilla-Perez
  • VP Public Awareness – vacant
  • Member-at-Large – Rick Seeley
  • Member-at-Large – Jacqueline Case
  • Member-at-Large – Cheryl Perry
After the elections, there will be a special presentation about our new (and almost ready-to-go!) Long Beach Legacy Businesses program.  Members from Heritage’s Advocacy Committee and a representative from Project Equity who together have been developing the program will share their accomplishments.  The talk about the LBLB (Long Beach Legacy Businesses – great initials!) will be very informative and something not to be missed.
Hope to see you at the Annual Meeting on July 31!
