City Club hosts Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber September 13

The Nashville City Club will host the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce* on Wednesday, September 13, to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. In this piece, Tennessean columnist Gail Kerr hails the event as a sign that the city is growing up, and she quotes Chamber President Yuri Cunza on its significance:

"'We are open to the possibility of trusting each other,' said Yuri Cunza, president of this Hispanic chamber. 'There is symbolism to eating together, to share a meal.'"

*Hispanic Chamber 101: There are four Hispanic chambers of commerce in Middle Tennessee: the first three are the Franklin Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. The Tennessean profiled these three chambers in this article in June 2006. A fourth chamber was incorporated this year (the Middle Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) but no activities have been announced.
