Miguel Pozo – Endorsements

MIGUEL ALEXANDER POZO

FOR

HNBA VICE-PRESIDENT OF

REGIONS AND AFFILIATES

ENDORSEMENT LIST

As of June 24, 2011

Dear HNBA Members and Colleagues:

I am proud to be running for the position of HNBA National Vice-President of Regions and Affiliates.

As of June 24, 2011, I have received the enthusiastic support of over 100 HNBA members across the country, including: 8 Past HNBA National Presidents; 10 HNBA Latina Commissioners; 14 out of 17 Regional Presidents (excluding Region III, New Jersey) publicly endorsing candidates; 12 Deputy Regional Presidents; 11 HNBA Affiliates; 5 Past HBA-NJ Presidents and other prominent HNBA members. Yet, it is not about the number of endorsements, but rather it is about the clear national support that I have received from leaders that you know, trust, and respect.

I have earned their trust, respect, and support because of my commitment and years of service to the HNBA and HBA-NJ. My commitment is evident from the significant leadership positions I have held, including as HNBA Regional President for 4 years and Deputy Regional President for 3 years. In fact, I have been selected as the Chair of the 2012 Midyear Corporate Counsel Conference and 17th Annual Uvaldo Herrera National Moot Court Competition that will take place in March 2012 in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Now, I humbly request your vote and the opportunity to continue to serve you.

Thank you.

Respectfully,

Miguel Alexander Pozo
