Canadian Latin American Association presents Alfonso E. Campos Reales with a Certificate of Appreciation
At the 2016 Annual General Meeting for Canadian Latin American Association – CALA, Alfonso Campos Reales from Lerners Personal Injury was recognized with a Certificate of Appreciation for his outstanding support and lasting contribution to the mission of CALA.
Alfonso joined CALA as a board member in 2013 and is now Chair of the Board. He joined the organization because he believed in their mission: to be a relevant resource to the Latin American community that promotes cultural identity and supports integration. In addition to this, Alfonso hopes to raise the profile of the Latin American community in a way that supports and encourages people to achieve great things.
Alfonso experienced first-hand how a supportive community can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. His family moved to Canada when he was 10 years old. When he arrived his family were refugees. They had nothing and they spoke no English. There were many obstacles they had to overcome along the way and he remembers and recognizes all of the help and support his family got from the people in their community. Now, seeing how far his family has come, Alfonso wants to help others who are experiencing the same challenges he did and to help them through their journey.
We are looking forward to our continued partnership and all the great things we can accomplish together.
