Guido PortanteIt is a distinct pleasure for me to once again sit on the Board of Directors, World Affairs Council of the Desert. As the Chief Executive Officer, working directly for our President, Dr. John Welty and our Board Of Directors, It is my goal to bring value added to our organization by focusing on the day to day operations to bring our members the best organization possible. One that all would say "we are proud to belong". I am particularly going to focus on membership. The life blood for any organizations. I solicit your help in bringing new members to your Word Affairs Council of the Desert this coming season.
