Transitions and New Beginnings

Earlier this year, you saw the announcement made by Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) on its newly formed board and my role as the organization's interim Executive Director. Over the course of the last few months, I dedicated significant time to help form the LATISM board, draft LATISM's bylaws for incorporation, obtain its first contract and organize local efforts in several states including local chapters and conferences. My goal in doing all of this was to help in the initial phase of the new LATISM start up.

Now, nearly six months after my leaving my job with National Council of La Raza (NCLR) to join LATISM, I have been offered the position of Vice President Digital Strategy for Ogilvy Public Relations WorldWide. I am stepping down from my role with LATISM in order to take this position and look forward to continuing to contribute to LATISM as a volunteer and a member moving forward.

Upwards and onwards!
