Congressional Hispanic Leadership Conference Set For Friday At Texas A&M

The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) will host its annual Future Leaders Conference Friday (April 19) at Texas A&M University’s Memorial Student Center, with Rep. Bill Flores chairing the event and joined by two other members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Organizers say the half-day conference, which begins at 9 a.m., will bring together multiple congressional speakers and distinguished corporate speakers in an effort to inspire and promote entrepreneurship and leadership among today’s students. The conference will center on current issues affecting the Hispanic community and the global arena.

In addition to Flores, a 1976 Texas A&M graduate who represents the 17th Congressional District, which includes the Bryan/College Station area, conference speakers include Lincoln Diaz-Balart, former representative of Florida’s 21st District, and Quico Canseco, former representative of Texas’ 23rd District.

Since 2007, the CHLI Future Leaders Conference has provided students and young professionals the opportunity to participate in policy briefings, workshops, networking and presentations from local, national and international leaders in Washington, D.C., and select cities throughout the country.

The session at Texas A&M is expected to attract about 200 students and young professionals, planners of the event say.

Registration is free and includes breakfast and lunch. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with representatives from corporations and different organizations with offices in Washington, D.C.
