ALPFA is one of the nation’s leading professional associations, dedicated to enhancing opportunities for Latinos. For ALPFA Miami, it all began in January 2002, when Zameer Upadhya, the then President of Florida International University’s Accounting Association, and Manny Espinoza, CEO of ALPFA, worked together to start the ALPFA Miami Chapter. Through the hard work of the Accounting Association, the Miami Chapter was developed.

The dedication to excellence that launched this chapter has not waivered since the chapter's inception. The Miami Chapter is proud to recognize the following individuals as people who personify the excellence that ALPFA Miami espouses:
