NAHCC awards ceremony Thursday follows lunch by TNHCC, or rather, TLACC

Like I said yesterday when I wrote about their lunch event, the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce* is great for networking, but did you know there are two Hispanic chambers of commerce in Nashville?

The other one is the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and they're having their annual Hispanic Heritage Month awards ceremony tomorrow, Thursday, October 13, at the Nashville City Club. There will be Latin-inspired hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, live music, and door prizes, and of course the awards. The Tennessean and also Cindy McCain have already ran stories about the event, and the invitation is below:

There is a lot more to Hispanic Nashville than chambers of commerce - the chambers are not spokespersons for anyone but their members, and they shouldn't automatically be your first call about a Hispanic issue in town. But each chamber's board is more engaged than it has ever been, and each chamber's approach is unique. It's not just that the Tennessee chamber is statewide in name and the Nashville chamber is city-oriented. The chambers have different personalities, different relationships in the community, and different missions. Events like yesterday's lunch at the Sheraton and tomorrow's awards ceremony at the City Club are good ways to learn about the two groups.

*At its lunch yesterday, the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce announced that it has changed its name to the Tennessee Latin American Chamber of Commerce.
