Luso-American Education Foundation
Annual Membership Meeting - January 16, 2021
Dear Members of the Luso-American Education Foundation:
You are invited to participate in the Luso-American Education Foundation (LAEF) Annual Membership Meeting scheduled for Saturday, January 16, 2021 at 9:00am via Zoom.
We would also like to thank you for your continued support throughout 2020. This has been a year of many challenges due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, as we canceled or postponed most of our activities. We did hold our Annual Conference on Education and Culture originally scheduled to take place at Fresno State University. Instead, the annual conference was held successfully via ZOOM, thus continuing the Foundation’s annual commitment and tradition to host the conference since 1977.
We look forward to your participation at this LAEF Annual Meeting. Elections for open positions for the Board of Directors will take place at this meeting. Please RSVP to the Annual Meeting by registering on the link below.
The Luso-American Education Foundation was organized by a group of citizens of Portuguese origin in 1963.

The Foundation provides scholarships and educational grants in various categories and sponsors student exchange programs, annual education conferences, summer youth educational camps and Portuguese Day activities.
