Honored Guests, Board of Directors, Esteemed LEAP colleagues, friends and family, I am honored at your presence. There are some occasions at which the most important thing one can say is "Thank You". For me, this is truly one of those occasions.

To our Honored Guests, thank you for sharing this occasion with us. To my dear Executive, Mader, thank you for the never ending support. To the Board of Directors, thank you for allowing me the great privilege of working with you. To my esteemed LEAP colleagues, thank you for making LEAP the wonderful organization that it is. To the lady who has served in this office before me thank you for your leadership and for making a difference not only in the life of this organization but in my life personally. And finally to my friends and family, thank you for your love and for being God's most precious gifts to me.

I stand before you now proud and anxious. Proud to have been chosen by this prestigious organization as the next Chairperson, yet anxious to be able to prove myself worthy of this honor which you have bestowed upon me. The road I took to this position was not an easy one, and many of you have stood witness to both the successes and challenges I've faced in my years serving LEAP.

 

But I look back at those years, grateful for the fruitful experiences I've lived through, as each challenge led to the next, and helped shape me into the woman who stands before you now. Very few people are given the honor of serving the one organization they treasure the most – their source of pride and joy – and I am one of those lucky people. But I wouldn't be here before you now if it weren't for all the challenging experiences I've had to live and learn through. Because of this, I am grateful for every experience.

As many of you know, LEAP is about building an exceptional community for all of us Administrative Professionals. Through the years, I've grown to know and love the people I've met through LEAP, and it is these very people who have made even just the thought of me being elected Chairperson possible. I'd like to thank my mentors Ms. Jinky, Ms. Frances, Ms. Ching - the brilliant leaders of LEAP who spent time with me as I tried to learn the ropes of LEAP. These people serve as proof of the greater things that LEAP is able to accomplish – providing Administrative Professionals an excellent community that they can rely on.

Of course, I know that I have a long way to go if I ever wish to be able to live up to this new task and honor the title that you've blessed me with. As I begin my new role, I'd like to issue one of my own challenges to you, anchored in the most fundamental missions of LEAP: to allow others to grow through the meaningful sharing of experiences, to hone the next leaders of our great organization. Throughout the year, you can expect continuous learning, personal excellence with LEAP –these are meant to help usher us into a new era of success. However, they require your utmost cooperation and intentional care and because of this, I need to ask: will you help me transform LEAP into the absolute best organization for the Administrative Professionals? I believe this position is just the beginning. I promise to never betray the trust afforded to me, and to instead use my skills to help grow the organization, proud not just because of being awarded the title, but also because I know that I've been given the opportunity to improve.

I may be anxious, but I know that with the support of such an intelligent, talented body driven by intense desire to see the organization fulfill its mission, LEAP WILL GROW BY LEAPs and BOUNDs. Thank you and enjoy the rest of the evening.

Ms. Tintin S. Cobreros
Chairman, LEAP
