Message from our Chapter President

ALPFA  is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing Latino leaders of character in every sector of the global economy.

Since our relaunch back in January 2013, we've been delivering on this mission by bridging the gap between senior executive leaders, young professionals and university students through our high-caliber event programs.

In an effort to better connect with our members, collaborators and sponsors, we will be launching this monthly newsletter, which will provide a snapshot of our many local initiatives while strengthening our connection with the community.

February Events: ALPFA Law Debate Series

Given that we are currently in an election year & in an effort to better insert our members to Puerto Rico's most important and pressing topics, ALPFA Puerto Rico launched the ALPFA PR Debate Series, which hosted a prominent panel of distinguished politicians debating the following premise: 
"Are Political Parties Indispensable for the Economic Development of Puerto Rico?"
The panel consisted of two teams: Sen. Kenneth D. McClintock and Sen. Joseph R. Nadal Power, who were in favor of the premise and independent aspiring gubernatorial candidates, Atty. Alexandra Lúgaro and successful businessman Mr. Manuel Cidre, who argued against the premise. The event proved to be a great success, with over 250 people attending. Candidates were able to expose their diverse perspectives on the relevant issues regarding the next election. The debate was also broadcasted live through our Periscope account with over 400 additional viewers and will soon be available on our YouTube channel.
