Event Evaluations

We want to hear about your experience so that we can continue to bring you relevant content and ensure that you have a great time at future events. Please participate in our short surveys during the day to let us know how we are doing. Evaluation will be digital on your mobile device.

Latino Force

Latino Force is LCFC in an online platform. We worked at building a secure and private community building web/mobile app that can be used to continue conversations had during the Power Summit into actions and relationships that thrive year-round.

Latino Force is easy to download and quick to setup. You will find our program guide housed on a page within the app, a group made for Power Summit 2019 and during the event we will send push notifications asking you for feedback and reflection on the program.

Download the app for Android or iPhone and setup your profile!

We will not only be using Latino Force for in-event and post-event community building, we will also use it for surveys and data collection. Evaluation data will not be associated with your profile and all answers are confidential.

Event Photography

We will have a professional photographer capturing images of our attendees and program participants throughout the day at the Power Summit. As a participant, you authorize the Latino Community Foundation of Colorado the right, license and permission to use and distribute photos, voice, image, likeness, in future promotions or campaigns around its work. If you would like to withhold your image, you must request so from event photographer or staff.
