The board is comprised of salon professionals who volunteer their time to develop and direct the services that the association provides to its more than 7,000 members, including education, legislative representation, technology, networking, and scholarships.

The board’s most important responsibility is the oversight and leadership of all facets of America’s Beauty Show, which is held in Chicago and attracts more than 60,000 salon professionals, manufacturers, students, distributors and educators.

Joseph Cartegena of Genacelli in Chicago was named president of the board of directors for the 2012-2014 term.  Newly installed board members include:

“Cosmetologists Chicago is a forward-thinking, action-oriented network with an unlimited future,” said Cartagena. “We have a winning team with dedicated, highly motivated officers and directors who will lead the organization into years of growth—for our members, salons and our America’s Beauty Show.

“I am thrilled that Joseph Cartegena will succeed me as president of CC,” said Gironda. “He is a real hairdresser’s hairdresser and will do great things for this association.”

The 2013 America’s Beauty Show, owned and produced by CC, will be held March 9-11 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
