Visit to Artesia
on Friday, 23/11/2012 —

On October 23rd, PAPS-LA went for the first time this year to visit the Portuguese Community in Artesia.

The Artesia D.E.S. organized a reception to the Secretário de Estado das Comunidades Portuguesas José Cesário, during his tour throughout the USA to officially present a new consular technology. This novel device (consulado itinerante) enables every Portuguese living in California to get their passport and Portuguese ID in a much faster way and without having to go to the Portuguese Consulate in San Francisco. For more information about this service please go to http://www.noscafora.be/v3/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=...

The visit to Artesia allowed PAPS-LA to discuss integration and recruitment strategies with the Portuguese honorary consul Edmundo de Macedo,  the Secretário de Estado das Comunidades Portuguesas José Cesário, the Portuguese consul-general in San Francisco Nuno Mathias, and several members of the Artesia D.E.S and Luso-American Organizations.

Most of all, this event promoted the divulgation of PAPS' mission and allowed a closer relationship between the Portuguese Communities in Los Angeles and Artesia.
