On Saturday, May 19, in the Convention room of the Hotel Diria, the General Assembly of Affiliates of the Asociación de Desarrollo Integral de Tamarindo gathered for the business of elected the members of the organization’s 2018-2020 Board of Directors.
For the first call at 3:00 p.m., the current ADI president Urs Schmid, presented the achievements and results of the work of the association, including an update on the lifeguard project, street work, public areas maintenance including the daily cleaning of streets and beach, and its representation at the Municipal Council meetings, among other efforts. Subsequently, the future projects that ADI will focus its energy were then presented.
Next order of business, and what ADI said was the most important, was the election of the Board of Directors members who will take office in June 2018, and continue in the positions until 2020. According to ADI reports, the election was ordered and took place in a framework of “respect and tranquility emphasizing that any person affiliated with the Association and present at that time could apply for the desired position.
During the elections, which took place just after the explanations, Schmid was reelected to President, and new posts were selected for the other positions.
The 2018-2010 ADI Board of Directors is:

“Each and every one of those elected by the members of the Assembly are people who have excelled in one way or another in the communal work and in the struggle to improve Tamarindo and/or add value to the team thanks to their background knowledge,” said Schmid. “One of the most important aspects is that the elected people have shown a desire to be in their respective positions and final accounts form a stable and focused work team and achieve the goals set.”
In the final part of the ADI Work Plan was approved. This document is the guided route that the association will follow, indicating specific issues and areas where it intends to work in the next two years. Discussion and ideas were presented by the group preceding the vote to approve the agenda.
