Dear Community Partner:
The National Haitian American Elected Officials Network (NHAEON) Inc. invites you to become a sponsor of our annual National Leadership Retreat to be held from January 27-29, 2023, in the Garden State of New Jersey in the Township of Weehawken. From its Hudson River vantage point, Weehawken offers arguably the best views of the Manhattan skyline. The National Leadership Retreat has been held annually since 2009 to continuously connect and engage our members and the Haitian Diaspora on various issues affecting the Haitian American community. At the retreat, we discuss ways to strengthen relationship between the United States and Haiti, opportunities for growth within the Haitian community, and partnerships with allied organizations. As a result, our 2023 theme is “Standing Together”.
NHAEON is committed to bringing a renewed national and local focus on key legislative, diplomatic, security, economic, and human rights issues. This retreat will convene Haitian-American policymakers from over 18 states joined by expert leaders and world-renowned speakers in the fields of housing, economic development, social justice, and education to discuss policies regarding the Haitian American community.
As a sponsor of the National Leadership Retreat, you will have the opportunity to showcase your organization’s identity by marketing to our members and their respective spheres of influence. Additionally, your organization will receive valuable recognition, ranging from a half-page to full-page color advertisements in the program book. This will also include marketing on our social media and website, event signage, mentions local press, your organization & Logo prominently displayed on our event web page, and complimentary tickets for our Chairwoman’s Welcome Reception and Leadership Gala.

We invite your organization to participate in the NHAEON 2023 Leadership Retreat.
