Announcing Our Newest Team Member
The Garland Chamber of Commerce staff is thrilled to announce the newest addition to the Chamber team, Liza Ceniceros. Liza joins us as our new Project Director and will manage the Chamber's programs and events.
Liza earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Texas Women's University. She comes to us from eight years of experience with Educate Texas, a public-private initiative of Communities Foundation of Texas, as a Program Assistant. During that time Liza assisted a team of individuals in the college readiness program area, as well as coordinated the various professional development and annual events. In 2011, she transitioned to a Program Coordinator role for the statewide postsecondary access initiative known as the Texas College Access Network, the goal of which was to build a sustainable network of agencies and organizations that collaborate to increase student access and success in postsecondary education.
In her spare time, Liza enjoys painting and dabbling in photography. She also enjoys time with her husband and two sons, as well as their three furry friends. Together they enjoy traveling to various in and out of state music festivals. Liza also serves on the board of the Shaw Elementary PTA as their webmaster.
Liza has lived in the Garland area for 16 years and brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and excitement to the Chamber team as she looks forward to planning successful, fun events that will result in bringing people together to either make new connections and / or learn something valuable that they can carry forward in life.
Like all great event planners, Liza already has big ideas for what the Chamber can do to add even more value to our attendees. We were curious to know, if she could book any speaker in the world, past or present, who would she choose?
"If I could choose one speaker in the world, I would chose the late Zig Ziglar. He was a Christian motivational speaker who encouraged others by his lessons for success, and was known for his famous inspirational quotes such as, 'If you can dream it, you can achieve it.'"
We invite you to stop by the office any time to welcome Liza to the team, or swing by an upcoming event and see her in action!
