Happy belated birthday Dr. Martinez!

Thank you for all the jokes and for showing me or reminding me of  the fun side of life and work 🙂

I am very grateful for finding you through the CHW program at NVC. You’ve been the most important person in my development as a professional, the one that made me believe in my potential and whose support I will always be grateful for.

I know there are many CHWs here in this forum who have been positively impacted by you and who share similar thoughts of gratitude.

On behalf of my colleagues, we thank you for all you’ve done for  CHWs in San Antonio and Happy belated birthday!

2020 Census Greater San Antonio Area is hiring

Hello everyone,

I am forwarding the following message from Decennial Partnership Branch U.S. Census Bureau in San Antonio:

As we prepare for a complete and accurate count of every living person in the upcoming 2020 Census, we will be hiring thousands of people from the very communities you serve, including Kerrville and New Braunfels.  We will be hiring management-type jobs, assistant manager positions, clerical, all the enumerators that knock on doors to make sure they respond to the census form and others.  All the websites where these job will be available are at the end of this message below.
To that end, there will be three Area Census Offices (ACOs) in San Antonio that will be hiring thousands of these positions in many counties around San Antonio. Take a moment and see if you are interested in applying and spread the word.
