THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS

Along with these special honorees we reflected on the accomplishments made this past year by the Chapter and our membership.  This year also marks the two year term of Jay’s successful Presidency.  Jay has brought accomplishments in the area of Government Affairs by extending fee reductions among the Riverside County.  The Chapter’s Membership Committee has expanded their efforts in retaining existing members and recruited an outstanding 75 new members to the association.  We have also experienced unprecedented attendance and participation at this year’s Spring and Fall Golf Tournament and Wine Tour as well as our Summer Winery Gala.  Jay's leadership has also grown the Chapter’s desert region by adding a new staff member and more events in the territory to service more members. We thank Jay Pierce for his distinctive service and continuous leadership. 

Please welcome our 2016 BIA Riverside County Board of Directors
