JUNE COHO MEETING tomorrow June 2, 2006


The June meeting of the Coalition of Hispanic Organizations will be held tomorrow Friday, June 2, 2006 at 8am at the Argentine Community Center, 2810 Metropolitan in Kansas City, KS

We have a new format for future COHO meetings, haz una click aqui to see the new meeting outline, as well as the minutes and agenda. While copies of the agenda will be distributed at this meeting, May's minutes will only be summarized. Those who wish to have copies of the minutes, should print from this blog.

Our featured speaker this month will be David Smith, President of the Kansas City, Missouri School Board. Mr. Smith will present on new initiatives of the school district and update us on the Superintendent search. We have allotted a half hour for his comments and questions from those present. We plan on that segment of the meeting to begin at 8:30a.m.

June's meeting will also feature a shorter presentation by Nikki Henning, Director, KC Area Regional Arthritis Center regarding services that the Regional Arthritis Center offers. Ms. Henning will be asking for ideas on outreach in the Hispanic community for arthritis education.

Announcements may still be made at the meeting, but only 5 – 8 announcements will be made at the meeting in the allotted time. We ask that those who plan to make announcements sign up at the beginning of the meeting and only bring materials for 35 - 50, taking what is not used at the end of the meeting.

Please us know your suggestions regarding presenters that you would like to hear – we are planning a panel of MO and KS legislators for the July meeting to comment on legislation considered by their respective state legislatures.

Also, please be advised that the COHO office moved to Cristo Rey School, 211 W. Linwood effective June 1st. We can still be reached at our regular office number 816/531-2251 and by email at

Mil Gracias! - Rita Valenciano, President, Board of Directors, COHO
