This year I was able to help plan the LULAC District III Convention and it was a blast! We held the convention in Garland, TX and had a great turn out. Some of our attendees were Ronald Jones, Mayor of Garland; Elba Garcia, Commissioner for Dallas County District 4 and Dallas County’s first Hispanic Commissioner; Ed Rincon, SMU Alum; Matt Garcia, MALDEF; and Mercedes Olivera, Dallas Morning News writer.
As the LULAC District III Deputy Director for Young Adults I was able to plan my own workshop for all the college students. Our guest speaker was Mike D. Merrill from the Social Media Club of Dallas who presented on how to brand yourself. The presentation was amazing as always and the students truly enjoyed it. They learned so much and are using what they know now on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
I also had the opportunity to present the young adult awards for council of the year, man of the year, woman of the year and advisor of the year. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
