2015- 2016

Hello members of the Hispanic Caucus. Let me introduce myself and the new HC Board members. I am the new president of the Hispanic Caucus. The new HC board members were installed at the November 2015 ASHA HC meeting.

My name is Linda I. Rosa-Lugo and I am an Associate Professor at the University of Central Florida. I have been a member of HC for a long time and have served as VP for Professional Practice under Melissa Garcia, Past President. The new board and I have been busy behind the scenes discussing the mission and vision of the HC as well as new areas of interest and initiatives.

We are working on a new website and Facebook page that will allow greater interaction with our members and potential members. Please stay tuned as we keep you updated.

As We Work on Updating Our Hispanic Caucus Facebook page our primary concern remains, to connect and share information:

Join us on the
Hispanic Caucus Facebook page. We welcome you to make announcements, pose questions, share information, and network on the  Hispanic Caucus Online Forum.  All you need is a free, g-mail account to register and participate.  This feature is powered by Google and allows you to receive e-mails, or periodic e-mail digests, of activity on the forum.  (Not a regular g-mail user?  You can create an account and forward your g-mail messages to your regular account.  After you've registered, from the main page simply click: "settings > forwarding and POP/IMAP" and enter the address where you would like your messages forwarded.)


The HC is reflecting on ways to better serve and network with our members. Please feel free to contact  us with any questions, comments or suggestions. We will be posting the name of the webmaster shortly.
