National Conference

The 25th Annual National Conference will be hosted by the University of Utah M.E.Ch.A. Chapter in Salt Lake City, Utah. 


You won't want to miss a minute of the fun! Since 1994, Mechistas from High Schools, Community Colleges, and Universities have come together to celebrate what it means to be a member of the largest Latinx student organization in the United States. Make plans for your chapter to attend the next National M.E.Ch.A. Conference today. Each year, hundreds of students from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. come together to plan, organize and network with other Mechistas and their chapters. Learn skills and gain knowledge from community members, MEChA alumni, and activists from all walks of life. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and some of us are lucky enough to experience it four times or more! Don't miss out!
