Letter to UTAH LULAC members

February 12, 2016 My fellow LULAC members,

I would like to express my appreciation to all of the Utah members of LULAC and tell you how excited I am to be in the position of State Director for 2016. This will be an amazing year for Utah as we continue to work for the progress and growth of Latinos. Last year Utah held the 86th LULAC national convention, we opened our home to the nation. This year our members will attend the 87th National Convention in Washington D.C. where Latino leaders will come together and be instrumental in helping our nation with several aspects of what we are trying to accomplish in our community.

As State Deputy Director I immediately took on the State Director’s responsibilities when Salvador Lazalde recently stepped down due to other community service commitments. At our regularly scheduled meeting on January 27th, 2016, we had a quorum and voted to accept Larry Love as the new State Director. Larry has appointed as Deputy Director Antonella Packard and Mario Organista as our board secretary. We had a very productive meeting and we are all looking forward to this New Year.

I would like to thank Salvador for all of his service. I appreciate the training that he provided to me and I would like to let you know that Salvador said he will continue as an active member of his local LULAC council.

I am sure you are already aware of the urgency and need to recharter our councils and pay our State and National dues before February 28th 2016. Please contact all the members in your council so we can make sure we have everyone paid up before the end of the month. In order to have voting rights for May, membership dues need to be paid in full.
