Los Alamos County Chief Appraiser Lucas Fresquez has been accepted to attend the NALEO Educational Fund’s 2014 National Institute for Newly Elected Officials. Fresquez works in the Los Alamos County Assessor’s Office and is president of the Espanola Public School Board.
“We received a number of applications for the Institute this year and we have strived to assemble a group that reflects the great diversity of Latino elected officials. While at the Institute, you will be joined by other newly elected Latino education policymaker, municipal officials, and state legislators from across the United States,” NALEO Executive Director Arturo Vargas said in a letter to Fresquez.
This Institute provides participants with a chance to learn, share, and develop skills that they will find valuable as they begin their new life as public servants. In addition, there will be opportunities to network with their fellow colleagues during the various lunches, receptions and dinners.
The Institute is Nov. 20-23, at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. The NALEO Educational Fund pays all air travel to and from Washington, D.C., accommodations, and meals during Institute events.
The NALEO Educational Fund is the leading nonprofit organization that facilitates full Latino participation in the American political process, from citizenship to public service.
