LULAC Sarasota President Welcome Message

Dear Friends of LULAC, 

I invite you to join LULAC in Sarasota, Florida for the 40th LULAC Florida State Convention and Exposition. As members of the largest and oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the country, we gather every year to address the critical issues facing our community and state. The Florida State Convention and Exposition will take place from May 3 through May 5, 2019 at the Art Ovation Hotel in downtown Sarasota, Florida. 

Each year the annual convention draws participants from across the state and includes leaders from business, labor and the community. Participants also include Members of our State Legislature, cabinet secretaries, local elected officials, and academic experts. 

During the convention, seminars and workshops will feature expert panelists to discuss education, health care, immigration issues and civil rights. The LULAC Convention will also host the Education Equity Development Training — an intensive and structured professional development program and leadership training geared for school district teachers and administrators interested in procuring educational equity and academic outcomes of traditionally disadvantaged students in Florida. 

Also, critical LULAC organizational business will take place at the convention. LULAC delegates will elect the organization’s state leadership and establish LULAC Florida’s policy priorities. 

The 2019 LULAC Florida Expo will feature corporate partners, government agencies, colleges and universities, armed forces, and non-profit organizations displaying their products and services. 

Please join us at the 2019 LULAC Florida State Convention and Exposition as we celebrate 40 years of service to the Hispanic community.
