President's Podium

November 4, 2021

Greetings MVMSA Members,

The past two years have been a challenge for so many, having to make and adjust to changes driven by mandates, just to keep us all safe and healthy. While the enduring Pandemic has changed our norms and forced restrictions and sacrifices upon us, we have continued to be resilient through it all and managed to press forward with life as it is today. As your new President, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for staying strong, taking on the role as a Leader, overcoming the various protocols and being successful in carrying forth the Vision, Mission and Goals set by the Department.

I am honored and look forward to serving as your MVMSA President. I’ve been a member of this accomplished organization since 2006 and most recently served as the Headquarters Area Representative since 2009. We continue to see growth in our membership as more Team Leaders join the organization and our Board of Directors reach out to new and upcoming Team Leaders, to encourage them to join. MVMSA has, for many years, partnered with Linda Sullivan and Larry Svetich of Hughes Svetich Associates and two of the most caring AFLAC representatives, Lorrie Burns and Kathy Morris; all of which have worked with us to promote our organization by attending meetings, assisting with personnel issues/concerns, representing the Association at CalHR and providing various AFLAC insurance options at reasonable group rates with one-on-one customer service.

Above it all, our success is ultimately achieved with the support of you, our members. We have achieved so much through your personal level of dedication, your participation and support of our projects and Annual Conferences (pre-Pandemic). I look forward to our continued success, your sincere loyalty and dedication to MVMSA and the Department.

Warm regards,
George Torres
