Almost a third of Chicago’s
population is Latino so it’s no surprise that LATISM 2011: the Latinos in
Social Media Conference is being held here. LATISM 2011 is a two day bilingual program
being held at Navy Pier and will feature over 100 speakers and performers and
will focus on Public Service, Business and Leadership, and Personal Influence

Our Voices to Win The Future.”
