Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico
On May 1, 2019 Lambda Alpha International (LAI) hosted the Rio Piedras Professional Advisory Delegation (PAD) in partnership with the Fideicomiso para el Desarrollo de Río Piedras (FDRP). The PAD was a precursor to the LAI Puerto Rico (PR) Land Economics Weekend (LEW) where the new PR Chapter was chartered and new local members were initiated during the LEW Welcome Reception.
Around 50 LAI delegates traveled early to the PR LEW to participate in the Rio Piedras PAD. According to LAI International Vice-President Cassandra Francis, “We hope this initial LAI PAD will serve to strengthen our connections with the community of Rio Piedras and allow LAI to be part of the community’s future renaissance.”
The RiA Magazine article, Rio Piedras: revitalizing beyond their wildest dreams, published as an overview of the Rio Piedras PAD. The Ei FB album, Rio Piedras Professional Advisory Delegation, is a pictorial recap of the walking tours and the formal PAD session.
Following the Rio Piedras PAD, the local LAI Chapter hosted the 2019 Spring PR LEW. In alignment with tradition, the LEW finished with an Awards Banquet. The FB album, 2019 Puerto Rico LEW Awards Banquet, showcases the festive evening.
