Board of Directors
Joseph D. Weathers
Joseph “JD” Weathers has been an active community member for years advocating for the schools and the county. He serves as the President of the Mora County Democratic Committee as well as the Director for Tapetes De Lana at the Mora Spinning Mill. He serves the community because he believes in the potential of Mora and he wants to see its fullness realized. His current goals for the community include seeing the Movie Theatre in Mora reopened and fully functioning by 2020. He loves fishing, hunting, and his grandkids.
Anita Lovato brings knowledge and accountability to the MVCC that is an absolute gift. As the bookkeeper for her husband’s business she keeps our finances in line so that we can better serve the community with accountability. In addition, she also runs her own small business selling Mary Kay. This enables her to be able to advise and counsel other small business owners of our community in a very powerful way. She and her family have invested and helped our community for years and we are fortunate to have her on the Chamber as an active member. Anita is madly in love with her husband and has made it her mission to help her children succeed to their full potential.
Sherri Moravec is not a native of the Mora Valley, but her service to the community through the Chamber reflects something very different. Falling in love with this area, her and her husband have sought to serve the community at any capacity they can. Having served as a Troop Leader for the Boy Scouts of America, she knows firsthand the value of investing in people. Her service as secretary for the Chamber is invaluable and we are excited to see what the future holds with her partnership. Sherri loves her husband and the views of Chacon
David L. Herrera
David L. Herrera serves as pastor of the Mora Valley Baptist Church in Rio De La Casa. His vision for the community is set in his focus on the children. From the largest Easter Egg Hunt in the Mora Valley to bringing a pumpkin patch to our community, he has set his service beyond that of his congregation. Amongst other ventures, David hosts a monthly FREE movie night from his church building for the whole family. His involvement with the Chamber is purely to see the community thrive. He loves music, running, his wife of 18 years and his 3 beautiful children.
Whether in the hills of Kodiak, Alaska or the valleys of Mora County, Duane Freeman has always served his communities in some form or another. Having served on numerous Chamber boards throughout the years, Duane understands first hand the empowerment that comes from a local Chamber. As a business owner (Yellow Dog Ranch – Holman, NM) and husband of a business owner (Rough Rider Antiques – Las Vegas, NM), he knows first hand that businesses need the extra help that a Chamber can give. His current focus for the Mora Valley is to solidify Mora Community Clean-Up Days for the Fall and the Spring that will remain a permanent staple for the community. Duane loves his wife and the community that he gets to live with and serve.
