2017 YOUTH CHARTER APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Dear Youth Members:
We have all seen the growing Latino population and the impact we are going to have in the future. That impact will not be felt unless we are organized and working together as one. That after all is what LULAC is all about and that is what our founding fathers foresaw when they first gathered in Corpus Christi, TX in 1929.
I want to thank you for your dedication and strong commitment to the League. And I look forward to working with you on strengthening our membership so that we can continue our legacy of accomplishment for the future.
Attached are the necessary forms to charter or re charter with the League of Untied American Citizens. All applications with proper payment are due at the LULAC Membership Office on January 1, 2017. There is a grace period extended until March 31, 2017.
Remember that to be in good standing with the National Office, each youth council must be in good standing with their state and district offices.
Should you have any questions please contact the Director of Membership Services at the address indicated below, or visit our web site at www.LULAC.org.
