Also, as some of you may know since August 18, 2008 , I have been immersed in orientation and training for my new position as a Conciliation Specialist with the Community Relations Service, U.S. Department of Justice. Accordingly, due to concerns regarding the potential for conflict of interest, I have resigned as President of the Board of Directors of the Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and as Chair of the Civil Rights Committee.

Christina Esteban, who was elected COHO Vice President earlier this year, has assumed the role of President of the Board of Directors of The Coalition of Hispanic Organizations. Christina has a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise, having served as COHO coordinator from 2002 - ­2004. I have been very impressed with her abilities and potential over the years and believe that she will be an exceptional and capable leader in our local metropolitan Hispanic community. She and I are working on a smooth transition and will soon have her email address set up at with the COHO email account so that, in the near future, you will begin receiving COHO updates and information directly from her.

I will send out a separate email regarding the new Chair of the COHO Civil Rights Committee.

Finally, I want to personally thank those of you who have supported me in my efforts during the past few years as COHO president. I am honored to have participated in the development of COHO as Past President and as an ex-oficio member of the board during this transition period.

¡Mil gracias! Thank you.
