During the Chelsea trip to Boston last week. your Chelsea in America Board were pleased to surprise our 'founder' Beth Wild with the first ever CIA Lifetime Membership. Beth, and her husband Carlo, are now CIA members # 1 and # 2 every year forward.
Beth dedicated 12+ years of her life to build and operate Chelsea in America, starting from a small group in Texas to the national group we are today with 35 local and 5 regional chapters. Her yeoman service for 50-60 hours a week PLUS running countless summer tours in multiple cities each year can never be valued. (If you've ever been to one of the summer tours you will know how much work went into each).
Thank you Beth.
Enjoy your trips and pub days with no CIA duties. You more than earned your membership forever!
