Las Vegas 2012 Summit

Dear Mita, Robert, Maria and Members of the the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Nevada,

On behalf of the Board and Officers of  FPACC, here's a load of Thank You's  for hosting us. We  know what hard work it takes to make things run smoothly, to have missing equipment on demand, to stay on schedule, to calm frayed nerves, to keep everyone well fed, to track registrations, to find compatible sponsors...

Your chapter did all of the above and still managed to smile, stay dressed, be on time.

So again, Thank You for stepping to the plate and saying "Yes we will. Yes we can!" Viva  FACCGN, the Most United Chamber in Las Vegas: United in Will, Purpose and Business!

Best Regards,

Manang YO
