FORT LAUDERDALE — The National Haitian American Elected Officials Network (NHAEON) will host its annual retreat in Arizona to discuss local issues and ways to strengthen the US-Haiti relationship.

The three-day event comes about a year after the western state elected its first official of Haitian descent, Christine Ellis. She represents Chandler, a city of roughly 250,000 residents southeast of Phoenix, on the City Council. Ellis is also the chair of this year's retreat, the 13th edition of the event.
