EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Spanish Business Association will bring Alejandro Vázquez to campus to speak about his experiences as editor of the magazine En Caliente, which aims to communicate the news, culture, traditions and face of the Hispanic community.

Vázquez will speak from 5-6 p.m. Feb. 26 in the Presidents Room of Davies Center.

Vázquez has 25 years of experience as a reporter and in the communications field. In Mexico, he has collaborated in different areas of governmental communication.

Vázquez's presentation, to be conducted entirely in Spanish, is free and open to students, faculty and community members. Refreshments will be served.

UW-Eau Claire offers the option of a business/professions emphasis with its liberal arts Spanish major. Dr. Juan Carlos Chaves, SBA adviser, hopes the presentation also will be of interest to other students enrolled in Spanish classes, as well as those who have studied abroad in Spanish-speaking countries.

The Spanish Business Association meets monthly, inviting native speakers of Spanish from all professions to share their work experiences and how they came to hold their present positions. The association serves as a bridge between the university and the larger community.

For more information, contact Chaves at 715-836-4287 or chavesjc@uwec.edu, or SBA president Chase Sova at sovaca@uwec.edu.
