On the 26 of April, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the yearly convention of LACMA (Latin America and Caribbean Movers Association) was held, wherein diverse topics were discussed, such as company trainings, the economic reality of Latin America, among other things. However, we would like to share with you the most important topic to us, that our General Manager, Sebastián Laporta V., assumed the post of President of LACMA for the 2017 and 2018 period.
For those who are unaware of what LACMA is, it is the leading association in Latin America in this industry, and has many varied programs, such as networking, scholarships, humanitarian aid, trainings, payment plan guarantees, and workshops.
The former president, Walter Laffitte, of the company Canal Movers of Panamá, gave the command to Sebastián in a ceremony which was held after all the present active members had voted in the second session of the general assembly of LACMA.
Sebastián became involved in LACMA in 2006, as the president of the group of the industry´s youth, LACMA Next; and later held various positions, such as treasurer, secretary, vice-president, and finally, the position we are sharing with you now, as President.
We would like to congratulate our General Manager for his recent appointment to this position.
