Dear members,Upcoming events and announcements can be found on the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber's web site.
Last year has been both challenging and exciting for the NAHCC. Re energized by our successes we at the NAHCC will continue the work that will strengthen our Hispanic businesses and aggressively move the NAHCC forward.
This work cannot be done unless we all team up JUNTOS, because TOGETHER we can make a difference.
Serving as NAHCC Chairman has given me the opportunity to work with our Board of Directors to move the organization towards financial self-sufficiency.
This is a hard task for any volunteer board; I am very appreciative to those who have invested time and effort to advance the work of the NAHCC.
To our Board, President, staff and volunteers: THANK YOU for your determination and hard work.
Highlights from last year include our increased our influence and participation with the mainstream business community and government. We are here to serve our members, but to serve our members we are to work diligently, creating opportunities, building the much needed trust, creating a bridge between communities. In order to move forward the PARTICIPATION of all of us is needed.
To our members and supporters who helped us this past year, we THANK YOU for your time and commitment. JUNTOS we are creating a better Nashville for all.
NAHCC Chair 2006-2008
