As President of the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women, I am first, and foremost, thankful for all of the Puerto Rican women that have paved the way before me. I am thrilled to lead NACOPRW in its 50th year as an organization!
Our 50th Annual Convention will take place in Miami Lakes, Florida from October 20th-23rd. The theme for our conference this year is "Celebrating Puerto Rican Women Icons from the last 50 Years".
With all of the issues in today's economic and political climate, both on the island and mainland, I believe NACOPRW has the potential to make great strides over the next two years. My priorities will focus on the following:
1. Growing our technical footprint and social media presence
2. Expanding our committee on Puerto Rican issues, so that we can become a hub of information sharing and in the forefront of policies that are critical to the island
3. Creating a sustainable model to secure financial stability, including growing our membership and chapter presence
