Local chapters of the most prominent Hispanic organizations in the country including the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting, and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers are scheduled to exhibit, in addition to inviting and encouraging their members to attend.
Premier companies with a commitment to diversity will also be represented, including Verizon, Liberty Mutual, the U.S. Department of State, Textron Financial, Tenet, Harrah's Laughlin, Cingular, and many more. A limited number of booths are still available for exhibitors wishing to attend.
