Monta Vista Recognized for Chapter Membership


During the 2012 International Career Development Conference, the Monta Vista Chapter of Cupertino,  along with adviser Carl Schmidt, received high honors when recognized as the 3rd largest chapter membership in the organization, as well as the largest chapter membership in California. With 600 members,  Monta Vista has certainly claimed the right as being known as outstanding chapter with high ideals and a history of excellence.
The Monta Vista chapter was founded in 2003 and has seen great success since their charter year. Under the direction of Mr. Carl Schmidt, members regularly win 1st place at State Career Development Conference as well as International Career Development Conference. Monta Vista will look to build on their success in the coming year with the guidance of Mr. Schmidt and leadership of newly elected Chapter President, Roshan Varadarajan.
