Glendale Latino Association’s mission is to provide scholarships to local students who have demonstrated educational excellence and extraordinary citizenship, to promote activities that improve education, and bring together businesses and professionals.

Our History

Glendale Latino Association (GLA), formerly the Glendale Hispanic Business and Professional Organization, was formed in 1990 by a dedicated Latina professional, Isabel M. Ibarra.

We promote awareness of Latino cultures by hosting special events and monthly mixers in order for our members to network with each other, and we produce an annual Business Luncheon, where we honor outstanding leaders for their contributions to our community and for their leadership in promoting the goals of the organization.

All our members are involved in the community. They participate in or are members of local boards and commissions, such as the Glendale College Foundation, Glendale Educational Foundation, Kiwanis Club of Glendale, Glendale Veterans Coalition, Family Promise of the Verdugos, Adelante Latino and the Glendale Library Foundation.  Others represent elected officials, and most participate in local events such as Unity Fest, César Chávez celebrations, and Cruise Night, to name a few.

We encourage you to join our membership, and pass information about us on to your colleagues and friends. Come and be part of this exciting group of people that is making a difference in our community.
