The mission of the LBA is to construct a communication bridge between our members and corporate America. As a student-run, non-profit organization, we thrive on a variety of activities to complete and fulfill our goals. In doing so, we have built a firm foundation through various careers exposition, leadership conferences, community involvement, excellent guest speakers, and fundraisers.
We pride ourselves in giving back to the community. For most of us, Santa Barbara is our "home away from home" and we want to do everything possible to help those in need. Not only do we get to see the smiles on other people's faces, but we also get to bond with our own peers outside of LBA meetings. Some of our past events include volunteering at our local youth center, restoration projects and feeding the homeless.
In the Latino Business Association we value our social events because here is where you will make connections with not only your fellow UCSB peers, but you will also acquaint yourself with local business entrepreneurs of Santa Barbara. More importantly, whether the event is professional or recreational each one is intended for the members to have fun and make lasting memories. Ultimately, each event is designed for the overall academic success of the Latino Business Association members.
