The League of United Latin American Citizens invites you to participate in the 87th Annual LULAC National Convention & Exposition in Washington DC from July 12 through July 16, 2016. As the premier Hispanic
convention, the LULAC National Convention draws over 20,000 participants from across the country each year including top leaders from the government, business, and the Latino community.
The LULAC Convention is an exciting, history-making convention, because it convenes the national delegates of LULAC to discuss issues, set policies, and elect the organization’s national leaders. For this reason, the LULAC Convention makes news and is covered by national and local media. It is the only convention in which participants representing Hispanic communities from across the country determine the positions and strategies of a national Latino organization.
Reach out to Hispanic America:
The LULAC Convention is also well attended by major corporations who recognize the importance of reaching out to national Latino leaders and influential community members directly. There are opportunities to sponsor workshops and events, to showcase products and recruit Hispanic professionals in the convention exhibit hall. In addition, all proceeds support the dedicated work of LULAC to improve the quality of life for Hispanic Americans. More information.
