Cambio Center News - June 2006

Cambio Center activities:

  • Cambio de colores 2006: the conference is just around the corner! Two weeks to go. The printed program has been proofed and should be at the printer today.
  • Southwest One-Day Cambio de Colores event: As announced, we will have an organizational meeting tomorrow Friday April 7th, at Mt Vernon, looking to establish partnerships towards a conference in late summer or early fall 2006.
  • Save the date: May 4, 12:00 - 2 PM. The Cambio Center's team (Anne Dannerbeck, Lisa Flores, Corinne Valdivia, and Domingo Martínez) leading the "Development Program Targeting Immigration in Missouri and the Midwest, and its relationship with the Americas" (a.k.a. UM Strategic Initiatives project) will present a seminar summarizing their first 1.5 years of work. Details will be forthcoming.
  • Save the date: May 16, 12:00 - 2 PM. Cambio Center fellows meeting. We will provide an agenda, but the most important issue is for the fellows to provide their expectations and proposals to improve our work.
  • From fellow Beth Barham and student fellow Joe Tillman: We currently have nine graduate student papers for the Latinos in Missouri Paper Series in various stages of editing. The papers will be finalized and posted to the Series website in time for the April Cambio de Colores Conference. In addition, four of the papers will be presented at the Conference and abstracts of all the papers as well as information on the Series website will be available to Conference participants at the Latinos in Missouri Paper Series exhibit.
  • Speaker sought: I have been contacted by the National Organization of Professional Hispanic Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS-USDA); they are looking for a Cambio Center speaker for their Employees Annual Training Conference (week of July 24th, 2006) to "address the issue of demographic shifts," in the sense of the impact in the agency's mission (main thrust is technical assistance for conservation practices). Please contact me if you are interested.
