      affecting the Hispanic population in LULAC?s national board.

      as well as a long time activist on immigration, civil rights and
      education. Her elected board is comprised of Deputy State Director
      Julio Alba, Peruvian business developer, residing in Miami, V.P. of

      Outgoing state director, Anita de Palma of Tampa , who held the
      position for it?s maximum term of four years will officially turn
      over the gavel to Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera at the LULAC national
      convention that will be held in Chicago , Illinois July 9-14, 2007.

      Awards were presented to Victor Valdes of Naples for Man of the
      Year, Joanne King of Tampa for Woman of the year and scholarships
      were given in memory of Gabriel Cazares, Armando Fernandez received
      the LULAC Florida Performing Arts Scholarship and Walmart presented
      other scholarship awards.

      Among other important issues approved in the convention were it?s
      selection of Miami as Florida ?s 2008 convention site. This will be
      critical as 2008 is an election year and Florida will play an
      important part as a key state for the Presidential election.

      Several resolutions were also presented and approved, concerning
      with 1)free trade for Peru, 2)environmental issues 3) Developing a
      Florida civil rights office to present complaints of human rights
      violation and 4) a resolution asking LULAC to develop a three digit
      rumor control and information/referral/complaint number to assist
      all those wanting to know basic immigration questions and a central
      place to call before hiring someone in filling out immigration
      documents. The latter will alleviate the overwhelming problem that
      has occurred to many immigrants that have handed their life savings
      for the hopes of gaining a legal status in the USA without obtaining
      promised results.
