SAN FRANCISCO - LAM Network, which connects professionals for business, career development and entertainment, is celebrating seven years in business with a grand gathering in San Francisco on July 18. The event will feature addresses by key Hispanic influencers as well as Latin-flavored music.
The LAM community consists of 9,000 Hispanic influencers and other professionals, and reaches 150,000 individuals, according to a news release.
"We are constantly organizing a variety of events, from workshops for small-business owners to talks about money and finances, to women's wine tasting to watching the World Cup," Giovanni Dubois, LAM's founder, said in the release.
Moe Vela -- the first Hispanic to hold an executive role at the White House, as director of administration for Vice President Biden -- will be keynote speaker.
"As the Latino business community continues to grow at record pace, I believe it is imperative that we unite," Mr. Vela said. "LAM provides a perfect platform to accomplish those goals."
Mr. Vela is president and CEO of global business development consulting firm Moe Vela LLC.
Five distinguished members will be recognized at the event as Member of the Year, The Mover and Shaker, The Activist, The Corporate Advocate, and the Community Organization of the Year.
The event will also feature live performance by Gabriel Navia and Jose Rivera, along with musica Latina dance tunes from DJ Santero and DJ C Bass.
