I would like to express my gratitude to the rest of the Executive Board Members (Jonnetta Chambers, Shirley Smith, Tracy Smith, Robert McDaniel, Jan McDaniel, Karl Downs, Gail Morris, Patricia & Dr. Dino Dennis, Emma Lawson, and Eugene Haynes), for their hard work, dedication and generosity which helped make the Inland Empire Senate (IES) successful. 

Secondly, I would like to introduce our newly Elected and Appointed IES Board Members. Elected: Jonnetta Chambers, Vice President; Shirley Smith, Secretary; Tracy Smith, Treasurer; Gail Morris, Recording Secretary; and Eugene Haynes, Sergeant-At-Arms. Appointed: Bridget Newsom, Assistant Treasurer; Jan McDaniel, Communications and King & Queen Program; Karl Downs, Tournament Director; Jacque Downs, IES Scholarship Fund Chair; Jonnathein Chambers, Junior Council Advisor; Rob McDaniel, Historian; Doug Woodley, Marketing Chair; Lareece Chambers, King & Queen Program; and Ruth Woodley, Membership Chair. Welcome all of you to the new beginning. My Mission is to provide exceptional leadership to our fellow bowlers and members. My Vision is to grow our membership, provide financial help to our striving youth that want to go to a college or university, support our Junior Bowlers on their quest to become young adults, and to further stabilize our Senate financially for a successful future. My promise to all bowlers and members is to dedicate as much time as humanly possible while continually building a strong foundation, “Paving the Road to the Future.”

Again, I thank each of you for your loyalty and commitment to The National Bowling Association Inc. and the Inland Empire Senate; please know that it is your continued support that will help make the difference as we move forward.
