Latino Leaders Summit Attracts Next Generation

 WASHINGTON  -- Through the LULAC MillerCoors 2010 Lideres Leadership Summit, participants were able to learn how to sharpen their networking skills, work effectively with the corporate and non-profit sector, and craft effective business development strategies.

"We were honored that Lizette Jenness Olmos was selected as the MillerCoors 2009 Lider of the Year," said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. "Thanks to MillerCoors, Lizette's commitment to the Hispanic community was highlighted, inspiring our young adults to hone their leadership skills to better serve their own communities."

"At MillerCoors we are committed to supporting leadership development opportunities in the Latino community because we recognize its importance in the advancement of the Hispanic community," said Joedis Avila, Multicultural Relations Manager, MillerCoors. "We are proud to be working with LULAC and our 2009 Lider of the Year on this important training program that offers tools to the next generation of leaders."

Young adults from around the country participated in a workshop designed to assess their personal development, measure their talent and identify their dominant strengths, while interacting with LULAC National Board Members and elected officials, including LULAC National President Margaret MoranSan Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Congressman Ciro Rodriguez (D-TX).

A reception followed at the Mission San Jose with LULAC National President Margaret Moran, Congressman Ciro Rodriguez, elected officials, LULAC National Board members and summit participants.

The leadership summit was made possible thanks to a grant awarded by MillerCoors to Lizette Jenness Olmos, LULAC's National Communications Director, after being named the MillerCoors 2009 Lider of the Year, through an online public voting campaign, hosted on the MillerCoors Lideres website.

Lizette was chosen as one of the twelve 2009 MillerCoors Lideres because of her passion and involvement working on major issues affecting the Hispanic community. Lizette's slogan, "If you put your heart and mind to it, anything can be accomplished," is a prime example of a dedicated and hard working first-generation immigrant who can achieve.

The League of United Latin American Citizens, the largest and oldest Hispanic membership organization in the country, advances the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating through 880 LULAC councils nationwide.
