Candidate for At-large Board of Director Member
Statement of Intent
As a board member, I would like to continue advancing the mission of the Hispanic Lobbyists Association (HLA), support the professional development of lobbyists and help increase the number of Latino professionals in the government affairs arena. I would also like to continue moving forward the HLA’s diversity and inclusion agenda with successful events and collaborative efforts from our members.
I am committed to continue cultivating the growth of HLA, and collaborate with HLA members to accomplish crucial goals for the next two years.
I look forward to working with the HLA leadership, its members, partners, leaders in the community, and policymakers towards these efforts. Thank you.
