Gulf Coast Chapter Receives Platinum Level Award Again

The Gulf Coast Chapter has been in existence since July 17, 1984. We’ve come a long way with the help of many dedicated leaders. We’re so proud to announce that this is the 9th year the Chapter has received the Platinum Award, which is the highest award a chapter can receive for its efforts in providing meaningful programming events for the local chapter. Programming events include educational events, general membership events, round tables, women in finance, and young professional events. Here is a list of past presidents who have helped to make this happen: Annette Nguyen (2010-2011); Daryl Bohls (2011-2012); Lisa Wood (2012-2013); Debbie McSpadden (2013-2014); Jaclyn Kaiser (2014-2015); Trey Rice (2015-2016) & (2016-2017); Gene Hayes (2017-2018); Cynthia Olsen (2018-2019); James Gaskins (2019-2020). Programming events are made possible with the support of the chapter board, our membership and sponsors. We’re proud to bring home the Platinum Award for the Gulf Coast!

About the Chapter

The Gulf Coast Chapter, like all RMA chapters, is organized and run by volunteer members. We strongly encourage current or prospective members to become involved in shaping the future direction of the chapter by contacting any of the current officers or committee chairs. We would also be happy to discuss the many benefits that can be derived from membership in RMA.

RMA HQ has advised all in person local chapter events be postponed until further notice due to Covid-19.
