Newly Elected Latino Officials Attend "Boot-Camp"

WASHINGTON----Just two weeks after the pivotal midterm election, 60 newly elected Latino officials are participating in the prestigious NALEO National Institute for Newly Elected Officials, on November 18 – 21, at Gallaudet University’s Kellogg Conference Center in Washington, D.C.

The three-day governance “boot camp,” hosted by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, is a unique, non-partisan professional development program designed to help newly elected officials acquire the skills required for effective governance, and establish professional networks needed to succeed in public office.

Seminars include discussions on budgeting, staffing, policy, ethics and other key governance issues.

Attendees include members from both major political parties, including Republican Congressmen-elect Raúl Labrador of Idaho -- the first Latino to represent the state in the U.S. House of Representatives – and Francisco “Quico” Canseco of Texas – the first Republican to represent his district in 20 years.
