Lambda Upsilon Lambda Hermano Victor Capellan (Zeta Chapter, Beta Line, Fall 1990) has been honored as one of the 13 MillerCoors 2008 Líderes of the Year. The annual MillerCoors campaign recognizes the leadership and arduous work of a number of Hispanic leaders across the country. To elect the 2008 Líder of the Year from this slate of candidates, the campaign encourages the general public to log on to their website, http://www.coorslideres.com, to vote for their choice from November 1-12.

The winning Líder will receive a $25,000 grant for a leadership project of their choice to continue their good work. Capellan a native of the Dominican Republic and advocate for issues relating to Latinos across the country is presently president of the Dominican American National Roundtable (DANR). If elected Líder of the Year, Capellan will utilize the grant to fund the DANR Youth Program that takes young people to Washington to receive training on becoming Immigration advocates.

"It is an honor for me as to be considered a candidate for Líder of the Year," said Capellan. "Educating our youth has always been my priority. By providing our young people with the tools to become immigration advocates, we will arm them with information to educate our citizenry and our political officials on the true, valuable and critical contributions immigrants are making in this country."

Born in the city of Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, Capellan immigrated to the United States in 1983. Since then, Capellan has embraced the challenge to motivate and raise consciousness within the Latino community. Capellan has held numerous positions around the country, such as Executive Director of Center for Hispanic Policy and Advocacy, in Rhode Island, President of DANR in Washington, DC, Principal of EBC High School for Public Service in Brooklyn, NY and now as Director of School Improvement and Leadership Services for Fall River Public Schools in Massachusetts. His focus has been educating the community on the importance of political involvement, creating paths to success and moving the community into positions of power.

"Voting for Líder of the Year will take place on the MillerCoors website at coorslideres. com from November 1 through November 12," said Capellan. "I hope my friends, colleagues and fellow advocates will consider casting a vote on my behalf so I may continue to work with the community and educate our youth on taking action, rather than accepting inaction."

MillerCoors is committed to facilitating the development of Latino leaders by providing leadership tools that benefit the Hispanic community. Joedis Avila, coordinator of the program noted that the Líderes program celebrates and supports national and local leaders within the Hispanic community and facilitates and provides leadership tools (scholarships, training, sponsorships and economic development) that foster the development and advancement of all communities, in particular the U.S. Latino community.

On Sunday October 12, a group of approximately 20 Sisters, family and friends were volunteer “Tastykake Cheerleaders” during the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. Each volunteer passed out water, snacks and cheered on walkers as they completed the five mile course. It was a day of remembering loved ones, celebrating survivors and raising funds for a cure. Omega Alpha was honored to be able to thank each participant for their participation and contribution towards Breast Cancer research. They have been event volunteers since 2005 and plan to participate annually for years to come.

On Sunday October 19, Chi Upsilon Sigma Sisters, their family and friends walked 8.4 miles in the Philadelphia AIDS Walk as Team #0018.

Denver, Colorado – December 2008

The National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) announces that two of its member organizations will no longer be affiliated with the NALFO. Effective December 3rd 2008, Omega Delta Phi Fraternity, Inc. withdrew their membership from NALFO. Jorge Garcia, President Elect of Omega Delta Phi Fraternity, Inc. described how their organization “appreciates the hard work and dedication of the NALFO officers and member organizations. We wish the best for NALFO and its members in the future and look forward to maintaining a positive relationship with NALFO and its member organizations.” In addition, Nu Alpha Kappa Fraternity, Inc. has also chosen to withdraw their membership from the NALFO effective January 1, 2009.

###

Established in 1998, NALFO serves as the umbrella council for 23 Latino/a fraternities and sororities from across the United States. The purpose of NALFO is to promote and foster positive interfraternal relations, communication, and development of all Latino fraternal organizations through mutual respect, leadership, honesty, professionalism, and education.

I don't know anything about the reasons behind these two particular orgs pulling out, but I have heard through the grapevine that some of the NALFO orgs believe the council is too large to be effective. That may have something to do with it.

I could understand some orgs that have been ineffective, ODPhi hasn't been one of them at all!

...but according to this, both orgs chose to leave....I'd just like to know the reasoning behind this.

I'm not talking about individual orgs. I'm talking about the council as a whole which might be why a strong org like ODPhi might take its leave.

I'm still waiting on an official press release from nationals, but I'm inclined to believe that this is, in fact, the reason:

As soon as I hear something, I'll post it.

I'd love to have a working definition of "effective" in this case.

LOL

I'm just sayin..... depending on what NALFO is supposed to "do" I'm not sure if it matters how large it is.

I personally think it's more important to have truly national organizations on a national council....no offense to more regional organizations, but I just don't see ODPhi and LUL as having similar issues culturally. (Greek culturally)

Of course I could be wrong, but I'd love to hear multiple opinions.

I've always thought (based on my past work with NALFO) that the purpose of NALFO was to provide resources to and support growth of its member organizations. Just like I stated in another thread, the council's lax requirements seemed to encourage people to create new organizations instead of building on the existing ones. The moratorium helped, but there was really nothing else that the council did to combat this. The end result is a handful of truly national organizations, several regionals, and a few one-state-only schools. I don't see how one council can support all of these groups' interests simultaneously.

What do you mean?

My guess is that ODPhi's decision may have to do with the fact that their membership demographic is changing, and they haven't been calling themselves a Latino fraternity for awhile. As for NAK...that was out of nowhere...but I'm going to ask about it.
