On behalf of the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA), and I as its 2011-2012 President, it is my pleasure to invite you pipeline initiatives such as scholarships for law students. I commend the HNBA leaders for their strategic vision in organizing this to join us at this year’s 2nd Annual HNBA Tennis and Golf Charity tournament in Miami, Florida, benefiting the HNBA Legal Education event. Fund, on Saturday Feb 4th, 2012. I am immensely grateful to our event chair and host, the HNBA Region VIII President, Teresita Chavez Pedrosa, for her tremendous investment in time and effort in organizing the 2nd Annual Tennis & Golf Charity tournament. In particular, HNBA Regional President Teresita Chavez Pedrosa whose leadership was instrumental in the success of this event last year. She came up with the idea and flawless executed its implementation. Now, it is one of the HNBA’s annual national events. Ms. Our presence in Miami in February 2012 will mean we individually made the decision to invest our time and resources to raise funds Chavez Pedrosa’s commitment to HNBA pipeline programs led to the expansion of this year’s event which will also include a golf and the visibility of our sister organization, the HNBA’s charitable arm, and thus, generate funds to assist and further educate the future tournament so that more of us can enjoy camaraderie and financially support HNBA pipeline programs. She has the full support of Latino (a) attorneys of the next generation. I am sure that you will discover that your support and attendance to this HNBA event will be the HNBA Board of Governors and that of HNBA National President Benny Agosto, Jr. in addition to the HNBA’s sister organization, enjoyed by all, but also a very wise investment. Last year’s attendees enjoyed great weather, great friendship and exciting competition The HNBA Legal Education Fund, which is the only IRS Section 501(c)(3) entity that supports HNBA charitable and educational between the players. programs. The inaugural Tennis tournament generated the funds that the HNBA Legal Education Fund used to award the largest amount of Through this event last year, the HNBA and The Fund were able to raise over $23,000.00 that financially supports charitable and scholarships in HNBA history for the winners of the HNBA’s 16th Uvaldo Herrera National Moot Court Competition this past March in educational programs, including moot court scholarships. In fact, The Fund was able to donate the most scholarship monies ever New Orleans, Louisiana. We anticipate raising more money at this year’s Miami event and promise to break yet another HNBA record awarded at the 16th Annual Uvaldo Herrera National Moot Court Competition in the event’s history. Knowing the expense of a law in scholarships handed out at the 2012 HNBA moot court competition to be held at the HNBA Midyear Corporate Counsel Conference school education, the Board of The Fund is committed to raising additional monies this year because the need is great. We hope that in New Jersey. you will join us in this endeavor. The HNBA is the voice of the Hispanic community and as such, we are advocates for those we represent. During the “Year of the Advocate,” the HNBA will provide leadership, education, advocacy, and guidance to three essential areas of our population. We will Sincerely, be advocates for the profession, the community, and the children. As such, it is imperative that we have a clearly delineated plan to best serve our members by creating, modifying and promoting initiatives to enable our organization to achieve the highest level of influence. As members, we must rededicate ourselves to the mission of the HNBA. As the voice of the Hispanic community, we must serve those Román D. Hernández, Esq. that cannot speak for themselves. We will not rest in our efforts for legislative, judicial and executive advocacy. We have come a long Chairman of the Board of Directors, The HNBA Legal Education Fund way, but our work is not finished. Let’s stand together and be an HNBA advocate in the upcoming year. I thank you in advance for your support of the 2nd Annual HNBA Tennis & Golf Charity tournament in Miami, Florida. I look forward to enjoying this wonderful event together and raising the funds needed to help the law students. Benny Agosto, Jr. HNBA 2011-2012 National President
2012 HNBA TENNIS & GOLF TOURNAMENTSDESIGNED TO BE A GETAWAY: South Florida days in February aren’t too hot, and theevenings are mild. While 2011 Tournament participants enjoyed a beautiful day, headlinesthroughout the country read like this: “An upper level low moved across... during the earlymorning hours of February 5th producing a swath of 3 to 6 inches of snowfall.” If you need aplace to stay, don’t worry, the HNBA will set aside a room block at a hotel that provides thegreatest value, and is close to the rest of the Miami action! If you must get some work donewhile in town, let us know and we will be happy to accommodate you.DESIGNED FOR NETWORKING: When was the last time you were at a bar receptiontrying to start a good conversation or escape a bad one? Relationships flow naturally amongteammates. We even help you mix it up and get around. We create teams according to playerskill and career path. An ideal team may have at least one judge, law student, in-house coun-sel and lawyer in private practice – or other combination of distinguished HNBA members.On the tennis courts, we let you play with nearly every other team as we follow a round robinformat.
