Absolutely not! Our organization prides itself on its vast diversity, with 30% of our members hailing from non-Hispanic backgrounds. Any student of Rutgers-Newark, regardless of their race, creed, nationality, religion, etc. is encouraged to apply & become a part of the ALPFAmilia.

This is a common misconception that spawned from ALPFA originally standing for "American Latino Professions in Finance & Accounting." However, as time progressed, in 2010, the name was changed to "American Latino Professionals for America" to be more inclusive to professionals from all industries. Our club is most certainly welcome to any major that wants to develop their leadership skills & professional development. We have partnered with numerous companies from various areas such as technology, consulting, marketing, etc.

One of the greatest assets to our club is the existence of committees. In the variety of our divisions, we have committees led by the Vice Presidents in charge of them. A member can apply to these committees and gain skills relevant to them, as well as leadership skills.

What a committee member entails is assisting the Vice Presidents in their duties established by ALPFA. Therefore, it is imperative for the member to be attentive to their VP's demands & always participate in the required meetings.

To accommodate this virtual environment, we will conduct our meetings via Zoom. Information regarding our virtual events will be distributed to each member through our newsletter and social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn)
