Message from the International President
Dear members of Active 20-30,
FAMILY – that is the first word that comes to my mind while writing these words and thinking about Active 20-30. Family is the one that is always by our side no matter the distance, difficulties, or obstacles we may encounter. They are those people who never stop motivating us, supporting us, and making us laugh in the hardest moments. That’s what we are in Active 20-30: A FAMILY.
It is no coincidence that the 2022-2023 term slogan is “One Family.” Although it is true that in the last few terms we have gone through global situations, those situations have made it evident that Active 20-30 International was born to prevail no matter how complicated the scenario may be. We have learned that we are adaptable and that together we can achieve everything. Today, this family knows and understands that the bond is not only created face to face, but that affection is shared even through a video call, and that these 100 years as an organization share the might of our membership. You, the membership, are the engine that keeps our buzzsaw moving, and that’s how we bring all those smiles to many homes in our communities.
Today, I want to encourage you to remember that together we can make every idea a reality. That we, as a family, complement each other regardless of the borders and distance between our clubs. As members of Active 20-30, we can dream to show everyone that dreams do come true. I encourage you to dream again as one.
Last, but not least, I thank God for giving me life and health to be able to fulfill my commitment and lead this organization that I love so much. Let us not forget that before Active 20-30 members, we are aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, daughters and sons, sisters and brothers, mothers and fathers, and with this in mind, I thank my incredible family. Those who have been there from the beginning: some unconditional sisters, a Mr. Rojas whose wisdom has always come at the right time, and a beloved Mami who has accompanied me in the early mornings, in the tears, and in the joys. Because without you and without those members who are like part of my family, in the midst of these 13 years, I would not be here.
Let’s go forward Active 20-30 family; let’s make this term something incredible together.
Nuria Rojas Torres
