chapter’s Executive Committee. Her two-year tenure
began last summer.
Alvarado has embraced her role and has been instrumental in coordinating registration and attendance for all chapter events.
Her willingness to assist in all aspects of chapter operations, no matter
how large or small, has contributed greatly to the chapter’s success and
Alvarado’s experience in information and operations management at
Systems Technology Forum Ltd. is an asset to the chapter. She earned her
bachelor’s degree in business management and her project management certificate from the University of Phoenix. She is also a Lean Six Sigma Green
