The University of Texas-Pan American Foundation Valley Outreach will be hosting a Rio Grande Valley Chapter Meeting of the National Hispanic Professional Organization on Thursday, February 19 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the International Trade and Technology Building. The Valley Outreach is an initiative of the UTPA Foundation Board in which board members and University staff meet once a month with a variety of South Texas professional associations and organizations to inform them about new programs and developments at the University as well as to promote and help raise funds for its role and mission within the community. NHPO is a national organization with local chapters that provide opportunities for Hispanic professionals to network. Valley Outreach will also be making a presentation at the Feb. 19 meeting.
