Membership

Anyone can be a member of FLECHA, regardless of age, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or religious convictions.

Members who pay annual dues of $20 are eligible to belong to committees and be elected to the Community Board.

Supporting Organizations

As a federation, FLECHA fosters and encourages continued activity and participation in other associations, organizations, agencies and entities that contribute to the development of the Latino community.  We seek persons to advise us of efforts in which we should be represented and assist in planning efforts so as to avoid scheduling overlaps.  In addition to inviting partnership on the events we sponsor, upon consideration and a vote by the Executive Council, FLECHA may become a Co-Sponsor of another organization’s event.  Co-Sponsorship means that FLECHA actively participates in the planning and management of an event and assumes financial role for expenses and recompense along with the original sponsor.

A lesser, but by no means unimportant collaboration is for FLECHA to support another organization’s event by promoting participation through FLECHA’s networks and directing our members to attend.

How to Request FLECHA's Involvement

FLECHA is always open to good working relations with other groups and organizations that benefit the Latino community in the Poconos. 

If you seek support from FLECHA….

  • send us a brief description of the event
  • include the name and email address of a contact person
  • forward to us any promotional materials, such as fliers, buttons, posters, etc.

Ordinarily, FLECHA will engage the entire Community Board for a decision, so give us at least a month’s advance notice.  If the cause is urgent and a month’s lead-time is impossible, FLECHA has the ability to convene a special meeting of the Executive Council to consider your request.

If you invite FLECHA to become a Co-Sponsor

  • send us a brief description of the event
  • outline the source of finance for the event and the expected proceeds or funds raised for a donation to a worthy cause, etc.
  • include the name and email address of a contact person
  • forward to us any promotional materials, such as fliers, buttons, posters, etc.

 If these submitted materials are favorably received, FLECHA will ordinarily invite representatives of your organization to meet with our board to agree on proper roles.
