(Jose) Antonio Tijerino, president and chief executive, Hispanic Heritage Foundation, will participate on a Sept. 16 National Press Club panel discussing ways journalists and communicators can work more closely with the Latino community.

The National Press Club is launching a series of programs to have journalists and communicators meet with top communications officials from diverse communities.

The series begins at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 16, with "Communicators and Journalists: Build Beneficial Relationships with U.S. Latino Thought-Leaders." Tickets are $25 for Club members and $30 for nonmembers and can be purchased online. The ticket price includes breakfast.

Kicking off Hispanic Heritage Month, the goal of the series is to open a dialogue based on cultural appropriateness and inclusion. The panel will provide tool kits of data, publications and practical tips for working more closely with the Latino community.

Speakers include Rosemary Ravinal, chief executive of RMR Communications Consulting LLC; Julissa Marenco, assistant secretary for communications and external affairs at the Smithsonian Institution; and (Jose) Antonio Tijerino, president and chief executive of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation.

The event is sponsored by the Club's Communicator and Events teams.
