RISMEDIA, October 19, 2010—Alex Chaparro, chairman of The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals announced that the trade association will host its national conference on September 17-22, 2011 at the glitzy downtown Los Angeles venue LA Live http://www.lalivemarriott.com/.
The 17,000-member group has deep roots in Southern California. Currently, it has five chapters and 2,500 members in the greater Los Angeles area. “Los Angeles and Southern California is a stronghold for the Latino community and NAHREP’s chapter membership in this market certainly reflects that. We’re excited to bring our national event to the West Coast,” said Chaparro.
In a departure from its conferences of the past two years, which it has co-hosted with the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA), the group will return to its original format of a Hispanic-centric program in 2011. AREAA will host its own separate event as well.
“The Hispanic community continues to lead the headlines with continued losses in the foreclosure crisis, particularly here in California. It’s time that we return the conversation to those issues that challenge the Latino community,” said NAHREP Co-founder Gary Acosta.
