The Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) was the first national association for Latino professionals in the United States. The first chapter was established in Los Angeles in 1972 with one mission in mind: To empower and develop Latino men and women as leaders of character for the nation, in every sector of the global economy. Since then, ALPFA has seen tremendous growth, with over 92,000 members in student and professional chapters across the nation.
“To empower and develop men and women as leaders of character for the nation, in every sector of the global economy.”
The ALPFA UCF student chapter was established in 2007, providing leadership and professional development to Latin American students majoring in finance and accounting. Today, we continue the ALPFA legacy by supporting all students, regardless of where they are from or what they study by including all Business and STEM majors. Through tremendous growth and success, we are proud to be 2019’s National Chapter of the Year, selected from 160 students chapters.
