Latino finance pros start chapter of National Group.
The northwest Arkansas chapter is ALPFA's 36th chapter in the United States and will add to the membership base of 8,800.
Adam Arroyos, corporate affairs director at Wal-Mart Stores Inc., will be the president of the new chapter.
Arroyos said the chapter was launched to support the efforts in recruitment and retention of Latino talent in northwest Arkansas.
"This is a very attractive part of the country for many people and particularly for the Latino community," he said. "We want to make sure we have the opportunity to connect those Latino professionals and give them the ability to network and develop their careers, and ALPFA has a history of doing just that."
The ALPFA Northwest Arkansas Chapter will initially be led by local area representatives from Crossland Construction, Ernst & Young, Northwest Arkansas Community College, Tyson Foods Inc., the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences-Arkansas Heath Education Centers, the University of Arkansas, State Farm and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
