Cordoba Corporations Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Randall Martinez, recently participated as a speaker and panelist at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Funds 10th Biennial NALEO National Institute for Newly Elected Officials in Washington, D.C.

They carry out their mission through programs that integrate Latinos fully into American political society, provide professional development opportunities and technical assistance to the nations more than 6,000 Latino elected and appointed officials, and monitor and conduct advocacy on issues important to the Latino community and our political participation.
As a panelist at the Institute, Martinez offered the perspective of the private sector and how the company approaches its work with policymakers. He presented to nearly fifty newly elected municipal officials representing cities located throughout the nation. Afterwards, the City Manager of Berkeley, Mich. and the City Attorney of Hawthorne, Calif. joined him in a breakout session entitled, “Policymaking and Making the Bureaucracy Work For You.
