2006-2007 LAWA Officers and Board Members

LAWA proudly elected our new Board Members and Officers at the beginning of 2006. The new team was formed according to the policies stated by the By Law. With a 2 years term, LAWA is led by Lao American women, who came together with myriad years of experiences in community services. Fortunately, we also have individuals who are new to LAWA joined to the new team this term. We chose to involve with LAWA in hopes of giving voice to Lao American women and empowering their lives.

Our new President, Mrs. Bounchanh Senthavong, has been committing herself to helping the community for over ten years. She was the Vice President of LAWA in the previous terms. In 1995, she was the first Principal of LAWA’s Lao Language and Culture School.

Our Vice President, Mrs. Viengmone Sophavandy was a member of the co-founding Board of Directors. Since its inception, she has served LAWA under several positions. Ms. Viengmone is also our Co-Treasurer, managing finance of the organization. Our Co-Vice President, Miss Anola Boutah, was a volunteer with LAWA in 1998, while she was attending college. She took a hiatus to pursue other interests after college and now she is back with LAWA. Mrs. Pornkeo Chinyavong is our Secretary. She’s a senior environmental chemist outside of LAWA. Mrs. Phayvanh Sengkhyavong serves as Co-Treasurer. She has extensive experiences in accounting and taxation. This is her first term with LAWA. Mrs. Sisa Meksap and Khuahine (Ope) McLean serve as Board Members. Ms. Sisa’s background is in the information technology. She works as an IT freelancer. Ms. Ope served in the Air Force after she finished high school. Serving LAWA for a short period of time, she has changed course and pursued higher education full time. We wished her well and much success in her new endeavor!

Although each one of us has a specific area of expertise, we all work together as a team to ensure that LAWA operates smoothly and carries on its mission successfully.
