This year and at the same moment that the Annual Congress happened, some BOD roles were renewed, president and vice president, Claudia Alcelay and Oscar Úbeda were elected as president and vice president respectively. That is a real challenge for Claudia Alcelay due to the continuous growth that this Chapter has lived over the years since 2003.
