On behalf of the League of United
Latin American Citizens (LULAC), I would like to invite your company or
agency to participate in LULAC's 79th Annual National Convention and
Exposition to be held in Washington, DC from July 7 through July 12, 2007.
As the premier Hispanic convention, the LULAC National Convention generally
draws over 10,000 people for a week of notable events. This yearís
convention featured 100 panelists and speakers in workshops and seminars as
well as in meal events, a three-day exposition with over 200 exhibitors, a
career fair, housing fair, the Federal Training Institute and the election

excitement than any other event in the Hispanic Community.
The League of United Latin
American Citizens is the nation's oldest and largest Hispanic organization
in the United States. With a national membership of 115,000, there are over
600 LULAC Councils in virtually every state of the nation and in Puerto

Americans. In addition, LULAC seeks to establish partnerships with
corporations to address the needs of the Hispanic community and to ensure
