TRIBUTE TO MAYORS
Consists of two 2019 events— a dinner during the United States Conference of Mayors winter meeting and a reception during the United States Conference of Mayors summer meeting. Both are ‘must attend’ events that provide a great networking experience for all guests. Mayors, area elected officials, policy-makers, corporate executives, community leaders, industry experts, and political insiders are invited. The Antonio Villaraigosa Leadership Award is presented to a mayor from a city with a significant Latino population who has exhibited an outstanding commitment to bringing diverse communities together.
LATINO LEADERS LUNCHEON SERIES
Consists of four 2019 national events— convened by invitation-only to provide a platform for prominent Latino leaders to share their personal story of obstacles overcome to achieve success. In addition, it provides a networking opportunity for elected officials, policy makers, corporate executives, opinion leaders, community activists, industry experts, and political insiders. The program includes the presentation of the Eagle Leadership Award to a national leader who has made a significant impact on the lives of Latinos living in the United States. It also features a community partner serving the Latino community.
LATINO LEADERS SPEAK
Latino Leaders Speak: Personal Stories of Struggle and Triumph, recently published by Arte Publico Press at the University of Houston, includes 33 keynote addresses delivered at the Latino Leaders Luncheon Series since 2004. As this book makes very clear, the Latino community has role models, heroes and outstanding leaders. We have so much to celebrate and learn from each other. Readers will be inspired to dream big, get prepared and get ready to lead! A Book Sponsorship is offered at all 2019 events. A matching curriculum guide for teachers of grades 6 through 16 is scheduled for completion this fall.
