Update -- Agenda for Friday's meeting; Membership luncheon postponed

Friday, March 10th at 8a.m., the Coalition will convene a meeting of members to discuss a policy that the Board of Directors will develop to address critical issues that occur affecting the local Latino community. Committee reports and presentations will be held until the April meeting. The meeting will be held at Penn Valley Community College, 3201 Southwest Trafficway, KCMO, Campus Center Room 503.

Frequently when issues arise which affect our community, we are called upon for a statement, for our position, as well as a summary of the actions that COHO is planning as a response. Recent concerns have included incidents involving local school systems, as well as employment and immigrant issues. We want to be sensitive to the concerns of our members and are seeking input as we develop this policy. We will give priority to COHO members in attendance and ask that all who wish to speak at this Friday morning's meeting sign up as they arrive. Discussion and comments from members will comprise the majority of the meeting. To view or print the agenda, click aqui.

Also, please be advised that the COHO membership luncheon, scheduled for Friday, March 17th, has been postponed. We will post the new date and send invitations as soon as we receive confirmation of speaker.

Thank you. Mil gracias!
