Noche Latina Speaker Preperation

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

As the Treasurer for the Latinx Student Union for the College of St. Scholastica, one of my roles is budget each semester’s events. Every year, the biggest event is Noche Latina. LSU brings in a speaker and other performances. The speaker can be lots of work if it is organized weeks prior to the event. Because of this reason, I am looking for speakers as of right now. I have been sending emails back and forth with several possibilities. Because we are on a budget, my goal is to choose wisely wich speaker will do the best to meet the goals for LSU next school year.
