The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) will host its 30th annual conference in Chicago from Thursday to Saturday, June 27-29.

The nonprofit organization works to facilitate the full participation of Hispanics in the American political process, from citizenship to public service.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus will be in attendance.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to address the hundreds of elected officials gathered at the NALEO 30th annual conference," Priebus said. "I look forward to sharing the Republican message and to hearing from our elected officials from across the country."

Topics this year include immigration reform legislation, LGBT issues and health care.

Last year's conference included addresses by President Obama and Mitt Romney. It was the first time both candidates addressed the same Latino audience during the 2012 presidential campaign.

The NALEO Educational Fund projects that the eligible Latino electorate will reach 25.2 million in 2014, an increase of 18.5 percent from 2010. This growth will continue in 2016, when the eligible Latino electorate is estimated to reach 28.5 million.
