CHCC focuses its proactive advocacy efforts on policies that align with the priorities established by the committee and lead to economic development for the California Hispanic small business community.
Our advocacy efforts may include interaction with public and private institutions, as well as legislative changes at the state and federal levels that support small business advocacy. The CHCC is often asked to lend its voice to a large number of advocacy initiatives.
The CHCC's Legislative Affairs Committee (LAC) is the watchdog of the Hispanic business community in California and Washington, D.C. Its responsibility is to identify and to report legislation at the state and federal level that impact business and to influence business-friendly legislation. LAC acts in compliance of the Legislative, Regulatory, and Initiative Policy Process established by the CHCC.
The mission of the LAC is to provide effective governmental advocacy on behalf of the Hispanic business community to promote the interests of the small and ethnic business community toward the overall economic development of California.
The Committee supports the Legislative Conference, Legislative Receptions and identifies and proposes legislative principles on issues of concern.
The Committee meets every third week of the month.
