Over 40 LGBT Organizations to Attend
Southern Nevada Association of Pride, Inc. is excited to announce that they will host the 2017 Annual CAPI Conference “Proud To Be”.
The four-day conference is scheduled to take place at the Gold Coast Hotel February 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th, 2017. The event is to feature local and regional speakers, along with discussion panels, workshops, and training sessions aimed at helping Pride organizations and other non-profits across the western United States enhance their annual celebrations.
Ernie Yuen, Executive Director of Southern Nevada Association of PRIDE, Inc. said, “This is a great opportunity for our city and community to show off all Las Vegas has to offer. We are lucky to live in such an amazing city, with all the glitz and glam of our beautiful casinos, one-of-a-kind restaurants, seemingly endless shopping and gaming all contained on the strip. I am very proud of our community, I want each and every conference attendee to return to their hometown and talk about the amazing time they had while at the CAPI conference here in Las Vegas. If all goes as planned they will be back for more!”
Discussions and forums will cover such topics as creating community partnerships, volunteerism, youth and transgender community, parade and festival production, developing creative activist events and more. Roughly 40 Pride organizations across the western United States and Mexico are scheduled to take part in the conference.
