The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce announced Lois Bauccio as President and CEO. She most recently served as president and executive director at the Child and Family Center Foundation (CFCF) in Santa Clarita, where she was accountable for raising an annual operating budget of $1.3 million. The Chamber’s Executive Committee unanimously agreed on the hiring decision, and the Board of Directors is pleased Lois has accepted this key business leadership position within the community. Having been named the 2016 Woman of the Year, as well as being counted among the SCV’s 51 Most Influential People by The Signal Newspaper for four years running, Bauccio was named a 2012 Empowering Hearts Honoree by Single Mothers Outreach.

The Circle of Hope Board of Directors is happy to announce the turning of a new page for the 12-year-old nonprofit with the hiring of Pamela Ripling as their Director of Operations.

Pam is excited about the opportunity to lead Circle of Hope to new heights, with plans to broaden the charity’s reach and expand their programs in the coming months.
