Large Scale Signature Events (LSSE) Committee
The LSSE Committee will coordinate annual events such as the John Trevino Holiday Assistance Program and the spring Scholarship event (Fiesta). The holiday assistance program provides the ingredients for a full-course holiday meal to eligible UT employees and their families during the winter holidays. Recipients abide by a set of guidelines set by the committee. The duties of this committee include recruiting and selecting recipients, soliciting community contributions of goods and/or cash, recruiting and coordinating volunteers, and implementing all other aspects of this program to execute a successful event. The scholarship event (formerly known as Fiesta) is the annual fundraising event. The committee plans, coordinates, and executes all aspects of the event, including catering, entertainment, location, publicity, and other duties necessary for a successful event.
Small Scale Signature Events (SSSE) Committee
The SSSE Committee will coordinate annual events such as the Darrell D. Rocha Metz-Sanchez Elementary Gift Adoption Program and assist in coordination of any co-sponsored events such as those during Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15-Oct 15) and Cesar Chavez day (Mar 31).

The LPD Committee develops a series of lectures, workshops, or events that will provide participants opportunities and tools for development in their careers and professional work environment. The committee develops the series for the year and executes its events.

Each chairperson works collaboratively with the executive committee to determine appropriate topics, agendas, speakers, budget, and other logistics as needed.
