As part of BULAC’s commitment to enhance outreach, each BULAC board member member will “adopt a region” (or more). This will allow board members to build a relationship with regional representatives and vice versa in order to augment support. This should include, at minimum, a monthly check-in by the respective board member (in whatever form works best for all parties) with the regional representative(s) to better assist them with alumni event planning and share with them what is going on with BULAC nationally.

This program is an  integral part of BULAC success and growth in its service to the Latino alumni community.
