Welcome!

The coming months are a critical time for the Latino community and all Americans. With issues like education, health, infrastructure, voting rights and immigration reform at the forefront of our nation’s policy agenda, leaders like you have an unprecedented opportunity to help America thrive.

As a leader on the frontlines of your community, I would like to invite you to join me in the effort to move our nation forward as a member of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO). NALEO is a non-profit, non-partisan membership organization committed to ensuring the nation’s more than 6,100 Latino elected and appointed officials are effective advocates for the communities they serve.

Through access to unique professional development opportunities, technical assistance support and networking events, NALEO members are able to build the skills and expertise needed to shape policy outcomes for their constituents.

In addition to being a part of the largest network of Latino elected and appointed officials and community leaders in the country, NALEO members are invited to participate in the NALEO Annual Conference and NALEO Policy Institutes. These events feature renowned experts that cover substantive topics relating to education, healthcare, housing, economic development, and other pertinent issues that affect Latinos and all Americans. NALEO members also have access to monthly audio-conference events and groundbreaking research publications that provide public servants with the most up-to-date information on many of the most pressing issues facing our nation today.

I hope that you will join me and the numerous elected and appointed officials from across the country that made the decision to become a NALEO member by joining NALEO today.

Best Regards,

NALEO President and Dallas County Treasurer
