Executive Board Farewell Letters
David Ribera -
Vice President of Accounting
After this past semester, the main thing I want to say to everyone is “Thank You.” Given theprivilege of serving on the board reassured me of the quality of members that we have. Manymembers went above and beyond and came through in times when others denied and I wantto thank those for doing that. One thing I have learned is that possibilities are endless onceyou set your mind to it. We are allotted many resources that when used and taken advantageof, we can excel and exceed at anything we set our minds to. We are faced with manychallenges and struggles, but together we can solve anything that arises. I believe we are trulyan eccentric organization that portrays a family atmosphere better than any other on campus.I personally have been able to count on members to be there for me in times of need andhave found many people to turn to. This is the organization we are and I want to once againthank each and every one of you for making this a truly unforgettable semester filled with many great memories. Thank you alland never look back for there are many challenges ahead.

I want to say thanks to my wonderful e-board for everything, as cheesy as that sounds. Thissemester has been great, fun, and hard work. I have grown as a professional, challengedmyself, and achieved many things that I didn't know I was capable of. Thank you all forbelieving in me; it has been a roller coaster of events and emotions, but we have all manageto give it our all, support each other, and grow- as Patrick says - "La Familia.” I am thankfulfor every single one of you: Paola, Cathy, Antonio, Eric, David, Yasnay, Patrick, Alfredo, Ayman,Chris, Daniel, and every single ALPFA FIU member.
I want to say thank you because I knowhow much hard work we each have put into making this a great semester, and it has paid off.We have started the meetings on time thanks to Antonio. Alfredo is and always will beALPFA's "Mr. Fun Guy." Thank you Paola for always being there - like a good neighbor.
I will give Yasnay's gift card magictrick to my QMB professor. Thank you Ayman for all your moral support. Thanks to David's wise choice of words I cancommunicate to other cultures with no barriers. Thanks to Eric, I love Quizno’s more than ever. Thank you Cathy fordictating, I mean leading, this wonderful e-board, challenging ourselves, and believing in all of us. I want to keep it short, butthere are so many things that I want to say. I'm very proud and happy to be in ALPFA FIU, and given the opportunity to stepup, and be on the e-board. I will never forget any of you- too many memories, nicknames, and inside jokes to count. Thank you for all your help, support, and most importantly for believing in me. I love you all.

I’m grateful of being part of ALPFA and will never regret embarking such a fantastic journey.The selection of your Treasurer for the Spring 2011 semester, provided me the opportunityto give back and offer you what I was offered as an active member. I appreciate you trustedme in the election process and gave me the chance to apply my hard working, detailed-oriented, and entrepreneurship spirit. Team-work was the magic key to the success of ourfundraising efforts, and I truly appreciate your participation in the raffles, car washes, can-shakings, bake sales, chocolate/candy sales; am I missing anything? Excuse me if at some pointI overwhelmed you with so many fundraisings events, but I’m sure you had fun and it willmake the difference in the amount of students we are taking to the ALPFA NationalConvention this year. I have set a higher fundraising target for the upcoming Treasurers, but itcan be done if you are passionate about it. Thanks for the support of the members, e-board, professionals, and sponsors whocontinue making a positive impact in the success of ALPFA FIU. I truly appreciate the honor to serve you as Treasurer thissemester, but I’m not going anywhere. I will continue being involved and giving back to my ALPFA family!
