Greetings CHCC members, Sponsors and Friends,
It is with great honor to get elected as the state's chairperson. Much work needs to be done and the road ahead may not be an easy one. However, with a great staff and board of directors, the challenge will be met with clarity on what our goals and objectives are. We are here to support and advocate on behalf of Hispanic and minority businesses in California. And equally important, we will forge ahead with developing and building coalitions with organizations that share in our mission of economic development.
The coalition building will start with all the Hispanic chambers of commerce and Hispanic business organizations throughout California. We will leverage small business advocacy with other business organizations and industry specific organizations to meet our goals and objectives.
On the national level, we will continue our partnership with the U. S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to advocate on behalf of Hispanic businesses.
We are looking forward to having a great year with fulfilled accomplishments!
Manuel Cosme Jr.
Chair, Board of Directors
