A Memorial Fund has been established to honor JEANETTE CASSERLY, our longtime hostess and registrar, and recipient of the O'Hara National Award for valued service to our members for the long haul. Jeanette passed away in 2019. We deeply miss her, but through our new memorial fund we will be able to continue to honor her memory, as well as partially fund new aspiring investors through sponsorship and membership in our club. 

Channel Islands Chapter has awarded the first ever Menteeship to Mr. Paul Morales, Jr. The Morales family resides in Camarillo, California. Mr. Morales is a Supervisor with the California Air National Guard, Security Forces Squadron, and has been active with the military for over 20 years. Mr. Morales has received many advancements and has demonstrated leadership and skills required in sensitive and demanding roles. 

Mr. Morales states as his goals: Furthering my experience so that I may continue to educate family as well as one day help other Veterans, whether it is transitional from active duty to civilian life via my own business (hopefully) or within the military itself." 

The Channel Islands Chapter is fortunate to have the vision and the resources of skillful members willing to mentor Mr. Morales and others to create a cadre of life long investors who will pass on these skills to others in the future.

We have secured funding for a second Memorial Fund award to honor our MICCI treasurer Willie Smith, whose husband passed in 2020.
