PLANS MOVING FORWARD

Overview

Latinos44 has built a solid base of membership and held two successful retreats.  The organization continues to be the standard-bearer for all other “44” organizations.  Since, the end of the Obama Administration, many Latinos44 members have moved outside of the District and have settled in communities across the country.  Members have landed in various industries but are continuing to promote and participate in causes and actions that concern the community.  Further, the Latinos44 membership is unique in that we have a diverse cadre of subject matter experts who can address some of the country’s most arduous political and policy-based challenges. 
We are faced with the task to encourage further professional development, foster new leadership, and build a future infrastructure that will allow for sustainability and scalability of the organization.  Fortunately, we have resources on hand to assist with membership growth and support.  Latinos44 is stepping into uncharted territory, but our goals are abundantly clear: we need to empower one another to fight policy-based and political challenges that affect our community, continue to build strength in sectors and subject areas where representation is historically low, and leverage our collective relationships to accelerate professional development that will poise Latinos44 members to lead in the next like-minded Administration starting from day zero.
This strategic document outlines key challenges and priorities for this year.

Capacity Building and Infrastructure

Latinos44 has established a core membership.  However we must keep our members connected, acknowledge dues paying members, recognize contributions across membership, and organize around industry, experience, and career positions—there will be opportunities where we must have the ability to recruit or tap members for specific opportunities at a moment’s notice.  To build a stronger organization, the Latinos44 Board has decided to invest in membership infrastructure. 

This will entail: 

  • Investing in a memberships association platform to house membership data
  • Recruiting a data management committee, and provide access to chapters
  • Continuing to recruit new dues paying members and ensure current ones are recognized
  • Launching the Latinos44 website and set a regular newsletter schedule
