Tennessee Chamber President under fireThe Nashville Scene dedicated last week's cover to Ismael "Robert" Chavez, the President of the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. The piece focuses mostly on Chavez's alleged personal and business affairs outside the Chamber, and how he is viewed among Hispanics locally and at the national level. Where the article addresses the Chamber directly is to allege that the Chamber is out of compliance with state tax laws governing non-profits. Furthermore, according to the article, the Chamber's board of directors recently proposed audits "to keep our ﬁnances clean and our affairs transparent" and called for elections in which past presidents would be excluded from running.
The next event on the Tennessee Chamber's web site is a June 25 golf tournament.
