Welcome and thank you for your service and leadership. All my best - Penny Elia

Thank you and we are going to give our best to our membership.

I am so happy to see that Dennis Loya has accepted the Chairmanship role on the Angeles Chapter Excomm. His many positions over the years, as well as, his involvement as a WTC area Chairman and instructor, give him the perfect balance of experience and perspective to lead the Angeles Chapter. The Wilderness Travel Course organization as well as many years of students have benefited from his instruction and involvement. Personally, as a Fellow WTC instructor, I can say that Dennis has always been available to help solve problems with solutions that I never would have thought of. He saved several experience trips with his original ideas and willingness to help fo which I am very grateful.

I really appreciate your support and confidence in my abilities.

It is very heartening to see the new ExComm officers open the door to elevated leadership in local conservation. Congratulations to our new ExComm! The Diamond Bar - Pomona Valley SC Task Force is grateful for your service.
