LAS VEGAS (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton will discuss Latino issues at a national conference this month in Las Vegas.

Event organizers say the presidential candidate will speak at the 32nd annual National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference at the Aria Resort and Casino on June 18.

Preliminary plans are for the former secretary of state to address issues important to the Latino community for about 30 minutes starting at noon.

The appearance is only open to conference attendees and the media.

Clinton also spoke in 2008 at the annual event, which organizers say draws 1,200 Latino policymakers and is the largest Latino political convention in the country.

It marks the second Nevada stop for the Democrat this year. Clinton held small-scale sessions on a May 5 visit.

This story has been corrected to show that conference attendance is expected to be 1,200 people, not 12,000.
