Portland, September 10th, 2015. The Hispanic Chamber hosted a Celebration dinner at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. The President of the Hispanic Chamber, Gale Castillo was joined by Portland Mayor, Charlie Hales and Oregon Governor, Kate Brown.
From the The Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber:
Since 1994, we have provided a vital forum for the Hispanic business community to share ideas, concerns and successes. As local community leaders and Hispanic Chamber members come together, they build partnerships that allow Hispanic businesses and other members of the community to better understand the contribution that each one makes to the growth and development in Oregon and southwest Washington.
We conduct a wide variety of activities including: networking sessions, luncheons and dinners with local and national keynote speakers that are leaders in their areas. The Hispanic Chamber also provides scholarship awards to Hispanic students. The Hispanic Chamber will continue these activities and will also:
- Advocate for the full participation of Hispanics in the economic opportunities in Oregon.
- Work to increase the opportunities that Hispanic businesses have to compete for public and private contracts.
- Work to increase the resources available to Hispanic businesses to help them grow and be successful.
Please join us by participating in events that highlight the contributions of Hispanic-owned businesses and support of the development of our future leaders. We have appreciated your support and we look forward to your continued participation.
To bridge the economic and educational gaps experienced by Latinos in Oregon and SW Washington.
