League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) 73rd Annual Conference and Federal Training Institute

The League of United Latin Americans Citizens (LULAC) will hold its 73rd Annual Conference and Federal Training Institute (FTI) in Houston, Texas, on June 23-29, 2002. This year's theme is "Leading the New Majority, Shaping the Future."

LULAC is a volunteer, non-profit organization founded in 1929 to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health, and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs. For the past ten years, LULAC's Federal Training Institute (FTI) has provided training at the national level to promote greater career advancement for Hispanic Americans in the Federal Government.

This year the FTI will offer workshops in addition to breakout and plenary sessions facilitated by experts from the Federal community, universities, and the private sector. The training topics will include self-awareness, human relations, interpersonal skills, effective followership, leadership dynamics, and creative problem solving.

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management supports LULAC's efforts and considers the conference as an opportunity to expand the Federal Government's knowledge base and engage in discussions about issues that affect our daily work environment. For additional information, please contact Brent Wilkes, LULAC's Executive Director, at (202) 833-6130, or visit LULAC's web site at: www.lulac.org.
