This is part of Hispanic Lifestyle’s on-line series profiling Latino Businesses and Organizations during the month of August.
Here is our profile of the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Chamber. We met with their President and CEO Steve Gándola
From their website,
In 1985, the Mexican American Chamber became the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to reflect the growing population of a diverse Mexican/Latino community. The SHCC has grown to a membership of nearly 700 and we are still committed to the same goals set forth 38 years ago.
The past success and the future of the SHCC are directly related to the commitment and dedication of past and current Chamber members, volunteers and our past and current Board of Directors.
“Hispanics are the largest minority in the United States, with an estimated population of 41.3 million. They are estimated to grow by more than 1.7 million a year.”
