Dear CHCC members, Sponsors, and Supporters, 

I am truly honored to have been elected as the Chair of the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce Board of Directors.

I would like to thank our staff, board of directors, volunteers, and supporters for their hard work to make this year’s annual convention in Sacramento a success!

Through the hard work of our organization, we have been able to achieve great successes within the last year. Some of our highlights include establishing a coalition with Statewide Latino Chambers of Commerce throughout the U.S., institutionalized the Business Leadership Institute, institutionalized the CAPS program, and launched the Procurement Mentorship program to match businesses with primes to increase their contracting opportunities. 

As your Chairman and a small business owner, I know the challenges that small Latino businesses in California face. As an organization that represents the interest of Latino businesses statewide, we will continue to be your voice and provide you with the tools, information, and resources you need to succeed.

We are working hard to empower our emerging Latino businesses and entrepreneurs by implementing measurable year round programs that will increase the growth and success of the small business sector. This year we look forward to shedding light on the growth of the Latina business sector and providing them with the support they need to succeed in today’s economy. 

We are continuing to strengthen our relationships with Hispanic Chambers statewide, elected officials, and organizations that believe in our mission to empower Latino-owned businesses in California.

With unity and collaboration, I believe that working alongside our staff, board members, local chambers, and corporate partners—we can better serve Latino businesses and help our communities grow and prosper.
