Focused on the Future
At AZALAS, we stay focused on what matters. That means always looking for the next aspiring Latino administrators for our great state. We support the efforts on continued excellence and Latino leadership in education. It is our goal to find and mentor Latino administrators, as we have successfully done for over 20 years!
Transitioning into the new year brings us a new name and clearly defined priorities. We are at the forefront of important issues for Latino Administrators within the state.
We are always collaborating with our members, whether at one of many social mixers or our annual conference. Our member base is continually expanding to the men and women of education around Arizona.
