Our Board

It’s not always easy work, but our volunteer professionals' guidance keeps things humming. A successful club starts with having special people on your board who have high expectations—and the skills to execute on them, if you’ll allow us to toot our own horn for a moment.

Luis Antezana, President

Kyra Martin, Vice President

Martin McGee, Immediate Past President

Lillian Quan, Secretary

Nelson, Fortier, Director of Communications

Damon Yerian, Membership Director

Nicole Llamás, ADDY Awards Director

Ron Pechmagre, Events Director

Cindy Pennington, Executive Director

Board Openings

We seek new candidates for board positions each April, review in May, and send to our membership for approval in June. But hey, we don't always fill every chair, so let us know if you'd like to be considered for an open role.

If you're still working up to it (or can't fully commit to a board role), why not consider participating as a committee member? Sure, it's a great track to higher responsibility, but it's totally fulfilling on its own, too. Read on for details…


Our directors definitely have the expertise but they can’t do it alone. Each chair has its own committee who do a ton of legwork in transforming concepts into realities. And what better way to get insight on how the club works than from the inside? Let us know if you want to add your skills to our mix. Read about the openings here.
