Distinguished Brothers and Guests,
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Phi Iota Alpha's 81st National Convention and Banquet in San Juan, Puerto Rico. During our 81 years of existence our brotherhood has become the most distinguished Latino organization in the country.
Our brotherhood has grown to include a plethora of prominent and accomplished, educators, politicians, businessmen, and four former presidents of Latin American Countries. We have committed ourselves toward the empowerment of the Latino community by providing intensive social and cultural programs and activities geared toward the appreciation, promotion and preservation of Latin American culture.
Aside from taking care of business, there will also be plenty of ΦamΙliΑ time since we have extended the length of convention to accommodate just that. These events will take full advantage of the venues and resources available to us in San Juan.
The 2013 Convention Planning Committee has been working very hard to make this convention one of the most exciting and memorable conventions to date, so you do not want to miss out. I look forward to greeting and welcoming all of you and your families to my hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Francisco M. Lugo Carmona, M.Ed.
