2018-19 Adviser Forum West has ended
Welcome to Los Angeles, and to 2018 Forum West!
**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times**

Dear CAC family,
Welcome to my home state of California and our Adviser Forum West! We are thrilled to have you here in the City of Angels and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome USC Corps! Fight on!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Yours,
Nicole Hurd
Founder and CEO

Patrick Mullen-Coyoy is a queer, mixed-race Guatemalan poet, educator, and Capricorn from Lansing, MI. When not advising students, he enjoys investigating and complicating the place of queer Central Americans in the U.S., whether by analyzing art and writing or by mapping out his own Central American identity in poetry about Ariana Grande. Beyond that, he also enjoys making new vegetarian/vegan dishes, watching Kristen Stewart in yet another vaguely French film, or watching the cult CW musical-comedy "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." You can talk to him about anything, though he'll probably bring the conversation back around to "Legally Blonde: The Musical," somehow.
