I. MEASURING ROI: HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR MULTICULTURAL MARKETING CAMPAIGNS (9:45-11:00AM)
With more scrutiny on budgets, marketers are trying to gauge the opportunities of multicultural marketing and how to effectively measure the success of their campaigns. It is crucial to understand how to effectively measure the success of multicultural marketing in order to validate the marketing efforts and justify additional budget to create culturally relevant marketing to this highly profitable target. In this session, Tony Suarez, Marketing Architect - Suarez Enterprises (former Vice President of Multicultural Marketing at McDonald's Restaurants) will address the top ten key questions such as the size of the opportunity based on the new Census results, measurement tools and ROI effectiveness. In addition, Hector Vallejo, Multicultural Marketing Manager- Stanley Black & Decker will discuss how to effectively target the multicultural consumer, share tactical strategies as well as some methods of how to effectively measure the ROI on multicultural campaigns. This session will be interactive and we ask that all committee members come prepared to share their strategies for measuring ROI on multicultural marketing campaigns.

II. MEMBER ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: MULTICULTURAL ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE (11:00-12:00PM)
Multicultural organizations vary from company to company. Some companies have centers of excellence, while others incorporate multicultural marketing into the general market structure. And some companies have multicultural marketing managers embedded into specific brand teams. In this session, we will review the various types of organizational structures and the pros and cons of each. While, there is no one right or wrong method to structure multicultural marketing, we will explore the various structures and discuss what works best for each type of organization.
