CNC National Conference

06/11/2014 - 06/12/2014

CNC’s 17th National Conference will present a Hispanic-American perspective on U.S./Latin America relations through five plenary sessions and two luncheons with guest speakers. Nationally recognized leaders from the public and private sectors will speak and dynamically discuss issues in the areas of immigration, trade, commerce, medical tourism, women in leadership, and U.S. Latino representation in the development of U.S./Latin America relations.

Latin Americans are the largest immigrant group in the United States; consequently, relations between the United States and Latin American countries are of particular importance to our community. Additionally, the economic and technological interdependence brought about by globalization, invites a greater Latino presence and informed leadership in the U.S./Latin America relations.

CNC conferences serve as an open forum for networking among participants who share common interests, and seek to expand their horizons through learning and sharing from each other’s experiences. Funds raised for this conference will directly benefit and impact the work of CNC in the community.
