Regino, who has served since 1974 and been with the chiefs association since he became Westwood's chief in 2005, said he was proud to earn the position and that he aimed to continue contributing to the benefits they bring to the community.
"It's a fantastic organization," he said. "There's a wealth of knowledge with all the chiefs and retired chiefs."
Regino has been a member of the association's board since 2010, previously serving as sergeant at arms, financial secretary, recording secretary and third vice president. He said he also hoped to serve as first vice president and president in the future.
