NCLR is proud to exhibit its growth and success at the NCLR Annual Conference, representing the largest gathering of the nation’s most influential individuals, organizations, institutions, and companies working with the Hispanic community. The NCLR Annual Conference provides a forum for people in the business of social change to learn about ongoing and emerging issues in the Hispanic community, connect with key community leaders, and generate partnerships with Hispanic community-based organizations.
The NCLR Annual Conference consists of four days of the most thorough and cutting-edge workshops addressing critical issues in the Latino community, five key meal events before an audience of 2,000 and presentations from speakers of national and international prominence.
