Where we Stand
The work of the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce could be better
described through the following goals and accomplishments:
We provide our members with
services, referrals and access to unique opportunities, programs and events. The Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
offers the much needed resources to our members such as business literacy programs, business development initiatives, Hispanic
networking opportunities through our monthly mixers, events and a close involvement with mainstream local businesses.
In recent years the Nashville
Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in improving the image of our growing Latino community while promoting
the importance of creating avenues designed to improve trade and communication levels between communities.
Our connections and ongoing
collaboration with many of our city and state economic development departments has lead to increased business opportunities
for Hispanic and non-Hispanic businesses alike. Our work force development initiatives have included Job fairs and job opportunities
at all levels with the participation of our corporate membership through online postings, newsletter announcements and the
support of recognized Hispanic media outlets in Middle Tennessee.
Our interest and on
going participation in the State legislative agenda will help promote legislation and policies that positively affect
the Hispanic business community; while facilitating a more dynamic interaction with the mainstream business community.
The Nashville Area Hispanic
Chamber of Commerce will campaign actively to strengthen local and state programs geared to improve the economic development
of Hispanic firms; while developing corporate supported training opportunities.
Our position is firm, we
have been known to promote ethical and fair business practices, for instance our most recent (as of July 2005) outreach initiative with the Tennessee Division of Consumer Affairs will provide our members, Hispanic
and non-Hispanic alike, a powerful recourse in protecting the interests of not only our members but also of the Hispanic
community in general.
· We will continue fighting for social causes, participating
actively in bringing solutions to immigrant issues, developing community programs, events and partnerships such as serving
as the appointed Hispanic Chamber to file complaints with related to a police officer or an employee of the Metropolitan Police
Department misconduct along with the Human Relations Commission, the NACCP and the Office of Professional Accountability.
Our 2005-2006 Agenda includes a strong
emphasis in providing technical assistance to Hispanic business, entrepreneurs and community based organizations.
We are the determined to build a future that will increase
the contributions of Hispanics to our country. We believe in earning the due respect through hard work, participation and
meaningful collaborations that can increase business relationships and partnerships between our nation’s corporate sector
and Hispanic-owned businesses.
