Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - ANA's 'Hostess With The Mostest,' Board member Robin Spencer, is stepping down from the Board to devote time to her new business venture, PIG OUT – a personal shopping service delivering the best and most local of groceries – and actually have a life again.
The Board will miss Robin at our regular meetings, but is delighted that she'll be continuing to do what she does best – organize and entertain.
Our Acta Constitutiva (Constitution) provides for the Board to fill a temporary vacancy like this for the remainder of the current term, and we are pleased to welcome Michael Lindner to the Board, with special focus on Full Member Buildings and Fundraising.
Michael will be working closely with the rest of the Board, particularly Sylvia Toy, our Membership Chair, as we gear up for the Fall and Membership Outreach and Renewal.
A relative newcomer to Amapas, Michael is the Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder of Hospicio Vallarta, a new home health care company that emphasizes palliative and hospice care here in the Banderas Bay area. In addition, he is the Executive Director of the Richard Allen Shapiro Institute for Palliative Care Studies, as well as volunteers at the SPCA and Esperanza de la Familia. In addition, as a classically-trained musician, he maintains an active concert schedule of organ and harpsichord concerts.
The Amapas Neighborhood Association is the official association of residents and business owners in the Colonia Amapas of Puerto Vallarta. A volunteer and not-for-profit association with about 350 members, the ANA was founded in 2002 to improve the quality of life in Amapas. We work to keep our neighborhood safe, beautiful, desirable and welcoming to tourists and residents from all countries and walks of life. We are also the official "Junta Vecinal" or neighborhood council for Amapas, the legal representative of the neighborhood to the city government. Learn more at AmapasPV.com.
