CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE

 



Greetings CHCC members, Sponsors and Friends,

CHCC started the first quarter of 2014 at a very fast pace.  Many of us had the pleasure of attending the Latino Journal’s 15th Annual Latino Leaders’ Reception in January.  The Board and committee members embraced the New Year with a revitalized commitment and positive attitude to move forward as a cohesive chamber.  The CHCC’s focus this year is to rebuild our collaborative chamber network amongst board members, with certified and noncertified chambers throughout the state, and with our business partners/sponsors.

In the last few months, the CHCC has accomplished many exciting things.

  •       Welcomed four new board members - Larry Garcia (At-Large), Juanita Ruiz (Inland Empire Chair), Linda Gonzalez (Inland Empire Region Director), and Irma Flores (Inland Empire Region Director)

  •       Certified three new chambers: Merced County HCC, Tulare Kings HCC, and Hispanic Inland Empire Chamber of Commerce.  Congratulations!

  •       Kicked into high gear the planning for CHCC’s Economic Summit & Legislative Conference in May, Annual Convention in August, and educational and economic development programs through the CHCC Foundation. 

Save the Date

You won’t want to miss these events, so be sure to mark your calendar.


  •        May 13, 2014: Economic & Legislative Summit (Sacramento, CA)

  •        August 13-15, 2014: 35th Annual CHCC Convention (Orange County, CA)

It is our responsibility to enable CHCC to provide Hispanic business and entrepreneur members the value they deserve. Through CHCC’s leadership and local chambers’ leadership and network, we can provide more procurement opportunities, serve as their advocate (with local and state government), and provide them with educational programs.

Thank you for your continued support to enable the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce to be the premier organization for Advocacy, Empowerment and Education for California’s Hispanic Businesses.
