This week we are sharing a message from our new NABO President, Annie Gavica. On behalf of everyone in the organization, we wish her much success in her new role. Zorionak Annie!
Message from Incoming NABO President Annie Gavica
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Annie Gavica and I am the new NABO President. I am very excited to be in this new role and look forward to being part of the incredible work NABO does across the United States and Canada.
I am a Nevada native, born and raised in a small town, dancing and volunteering in small Basque clubs. In 2003, I moved to Boise to attend Boise State University and join the Basque Community there. I filled various roles in Euskaldunak, Oinkari Basque Dancers and am currently the Executive Director of the Basque Museum & Cultural Center. Much of my time is based on Basque events and programs and so it felt like a perfect fit to jump into the role as NABO President.
Over the upcoming year, I hope to learn more about each NABO club and help the organization grow as it has been for years. I would like to thank Euzkaldunak of Boise for nominating me, and the delegates at the Summer Convention in Buffalo, Wyoming for your confidence and support as I take this new endeavor! Eskerrik asko eta aurrera!
