The ABA Speaker Series
This is a continuation of a successful ABA Guest Speaker Program established in 1996 which provided information about quality programs and methodology and promoted quality improvement efforts.

State of the Hispanic Community
On March 2, 2012, on behalf of the University, the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer sponsored the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SHCC) 40th Annual Business Awards and Recognition Gala.
The event was held at the Hyatt Regency, Sacramento with an audience that was primarily civic and business leaders. For registration and more information on SHCC, go to www.sachcc.org.
The Hispanic community is growing at a tremendous rate. In less than a decade it has been projected that our region will be over 50% Hispanic. This fast-paced growth will have major implications for the Hispanic community. It will affect workforce, education, public budgets and policy, recreation, neighborhoods and a host of other areas. The “State of Hispanics” event consisted of a data-based presentation which painted an overall picture of the Hispanic community. It laid out current demographics in our region, trends into the future and some of the current and future issues faced by the region due to the growth of Hispanics.
