Earlier this morning the US Census Bureau made this dramatic announcement: White births are no longer the majority in the United States.
The new 2011 census, reveals non-Hispanic whites accounted for 49.6 per cent of all births in the 12-month period that ended last July.
The minorities – Hispanics, blacks, Asians and those of mixed race – made 50.4 per cent in total, with Hispanics at 26 per cent, blacks 15 per cent, and about 4 per cent Asian. That compares with a 37 per cent ratio in 1990.
Clearly Hispanics...or Latinos are in the lead in population growth and overall demographic increases in American cities and towns throughout the country.
And in the field of business, finance and economic development, the Latino community has firm footing within industries across the globe.
Joining me today is Marcela Aldaz, one of the leading spokespersons representing ALPFA, the nation's fastest growing Latino business organization in the country.
Note: The word Hispanic is used interchangeably with Latino.
Latinas are women in the Latino/Hispanic community.
ALPFA is the leading national professional association, consisting of chapters across the country and Puerto Rico. ALPFA is dedicated to enhancing opportunities for Latinos in the business, accounting, finance and related professions. ALPFA is a not-for-profit entity registered with the Internal Revenue Service. Membership is open to anyone who shares our values, mission, and principles.
ALPFA is the proud successor of the American Association of Hispanic Certified Public Accountants (AAHCPA), the first national Latino professional association in the United States. Established in 1972, this Association continues to build upon our proud legacy of shared values and guiding principles.
Upon this bedrock of shared values, the Association’s visionary founders launched an ambitious mission that they pursued over the course of thirty years. Committed to its shared values and to its mission, the Association flourished, expanding its base of operations to fifteen chapters nation-wide with several more in formation
As heir to this rich legacy, ALPFA’s current Board of Directors, with the support of the Corporate Advisory Board, is innovatively addressing the challenges that lie ahead by promoting the highest standards of excellence for itself and for its members. ALPFA advances into the 21st century as an experienced professional association dedicated to enhancing opportunities for Latinos in the accounting, finance and related professions.
