The USHLI Conference has become the premier Hispanic leadership conference in the nation, attracting a complete cross section of our leadership community and involving all ancestry groups. Over 6,500 present and future leaders representing 40 states will attend various events throughout the four days. A survey of participants in 2015 found that 72% were 18-34 years of age, 60% were women, and 82% were attending or had already completed college. Most conference participants are or will become the most influential Hispanic leaders of their generation and will help govern our cities, schools, states and, indeed, a nation that will become 25% Hispanic during their lifetime.

This conference is an extraordinary opportunity for students and young professionals to meet recruiters, national policy-makers, and future employers.The conference brings participants together to develop and/or strengthen their leadership skills and to grow as servant leaders. Participants will hear nationally prominent, standing-ovation quality speakers and workshop presenters who are highly interactive and experts in their field.

In addition to hosting our national conference, USHLI has registered over 2.3 million new voters, published 425 studies on Latino demographics including our flagship biennial online publication of the Almanac of Latino Politics, and over 800,000 present and future leaders have participated in local and national leadership programs.
