The NALEO annual conference took place in Washington D.C. this past weekend where 1000 members convened to discuss critical issues and conduct elections. Members elected a new president and 7 new board of directors, including Archuleta, to the 27 person board. Members will serve a 3-year term.

“It is an honor to be elected to this prestigious position and to serve with my fellow members on behalf of Latino’s in my district and throughout Coconino County,” said Archuleta. “I look forward to advocating at the federal level with NALEO to fix our broken immigration system, educate our children and ensuring qualified Latino’s are appointed as judges and to other federal offices.”

During the conference Archuleta also moderated a panel titled “Criminal Justice Reform: Policies and Programs that Support Rehabilitation and Re-Entry.” The panel focused on the growing bi-partisan support for criminal justice reform and the importance of reducing recidivism and successful rehabilitation. Archuleta highlighted the successes of Coconino County’s Exodus Program, pre-trial services, multiple specialty courts and community based partnerships.

NALEO is a non-partisan leadership organization of the nation’s more than 6,100 Latino elected and appointed officials.
