Dear NHAE Community:
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as president of the Network of Hispanic Administrators in Education for the past 9 years. With the support and hard work of my colleagues on the executive board, Judy Sauri, Maria Fresse-GIffels, Veronica Iturralde, and Terri Campos, NHAE’s record of accomplishments expanded on the work of previous boards to include: increased membership, networking opportunities, mentoring, principal preparation sessions, collaboration with like-minded organizations, advocacy work, and increased scholarship awards.
Last week the outgoing executive board witnessed the virtual installation of the incoming NHAE board, and I am extremely confident that the work of the organization will continue to expand under the leadership of Antonio Acevedo, Terri Campos, Maria Fresse-Giffels, Nelly Robles, and Elba Iñiguez. I ask that you continue to stay engaged and support the work of NHAE on behalf of securing quality and equity of programs and services for Latino educators, students, and communities.
Thank you for the work that you do and for your commitment to the communities you serve. I look forward to the next in-person NHAE event!
...NHAE and run for office

Dear NHAE Members:
As shared at our membership meeting this past Wednesday, elections will be held for the executive board this year. A committee has been appointed and they will be responsible for all aspects related to this year’s election as described in the by-laws.
The nomination period will be from January 29 at 5:00 pm until February 29, 2020 at midnight. Anyone wishing to run for office or nominate someone may do so by contacting Gloria Espinosa at email@example.com. The slate of candidates will be announced at the March 18, 2020 membership meeting. The voting period for the NHAE board is March 18 to April 10, 2020. Election results will be shared with members on or prior to the May 15, 2020 banquet.
On 9/26/2018 we asked the CPS Board of Education to make a commitment to begin to close the existing gap between 48% of Latino student population, which increased 18% during the past 20 years, and the dismal 12% of cabinet level positions held by Latinos, a decrease during the same 20 years.
We are asking the CPS administration to make a commitment to begin to close the gap by doubling the number of cabinet level positions-held by Latinos-
from 12% to 24% by June 2020.
