On Thursday, February 8th 2018, the San Fernando Chapter of NAHREP held its annual installation gala at Placio Torres in Sylmar, CA. The vast banquet hall was draped in elegance for the evening, as black and white linens covered the tables, and San Fernando's best dressers covered the dance floor.
The live mariachi band and 30 ft buffet table helped create an exceptional evening, but the biggest highlight of the event was the passing of the presidential torch. Gerardo "Jerry" Ascencio, the founding president of the San Fernando Chapter, summarized his keynote speech with the triumphant statement, "With NAHREP, It's all about familia." This line ended up being a perfect preface to the moment of history soon to follow, as only a few minutes later, Ascencio's son, Gerardo Ascencio Jr., was installed as the new President of the San Fernando Chapter. This marks the first time in National NAHREP history that a son would succeed his father as chapter president.
The Gala was also a major highlight for Global Premier's Jesse Guzman, as he was recognized for his board position in 2017, and then reinstalled for the 2018 season. He will continue to serve on the NAHREP San Fernando Chapter Board as the Director of Governmental Affairs.
Global Premier Properties, Inc. would like to extend a special thanks to Precision Escrow for its accommodations during the event.
