About the Virtual NALEO 38th Annual Conference
Join the Virtual NALEO 38th Annual Conference, the nation’s largest and most prestigious gathering of Latino elected and appointed officials. This year’s virtual convening presents an unparalleled opportunity for Latino policymakers to meet with their colleagues from all levels of government. 2020 was an unprecedented year with the United States simultaneously experiencing the worst public health crisis in over a century, a reckoning on systemic racism, and the worst attacks on our institutions and democracy since the Civil War.
As we continue to face these realities in 2021, it is critical that we are poised to face how these issues will affect a wide range of policy decisions for the foreseeable future. As all of these issue areas have had a significant impact on the Latino community, this year’s Conference will provide a virtual venue for the meaningful exchange of ideas on charting a path forward toward further community resilience and national healing. Together, we can build this future and emerge stronger than we were before.
Dynamic Programs That Foster Solutions and Ideas
The Virtual NALEO 38th Annual Conference is unlike any other professional development gathering for elected and appointed officials. Participants include an array of geographically diverse policymakers from various levels of government, representatives from philanthropy and the private sector, and other community leaders. The convening of such a varied group of stakeholders offers a unique opportunity to discuss and exchange policy ideas, best practices, and innovative approaches to addressing the most pressing policy challenges facing our communities.
Meaningful Access for Latino Policymakers
The Virtual NALEO 38th Annual Conference will provide participants with the unparalleled opportunity to hear directly from our nation’s top executive and legislative leaders. Past participants have included the U.S. President, U.S. Vice President, members of the President’s Cabinet, leaders of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, Presidential candidates, and corporate and business leaders.
