Notes From Ish


Ismael Herrera


Things have slowed down here on campus with the summer recess but activity in our office was turned up a notch in June. We showcased our growing body of work in the financial capability space with partners in San Francisco. We teamed up with local partners to deliver an informational session on community choice energy. Our San Joaquin Valley Housing Collaborative team delivered a successful training workshop. Our collective San Joaquin Valley Regional Broadband Consortium efforts deployed many of us to important events throughout the region and state. We convened an informative and delicious (thank you Superior Dairy!) Partnership Board of Directors meeting. But perhaps most exciting of all, we welcomed two new members to our growing team! This month’s Staff Spotlight introduces you to one of those two new talents. Last but not least, I had the blessing of turning 35 on June 7th. 


Until next month…

Ismael D. Herrera, Jr.
Executive Director
