EVENT | CHCC Economic Summit March 14, 2013

The California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce (CHCC) recognizes that the number one priority for California residents and businesses is job creation and job sustainability for California’s Economy. The CHCC’s “Economic Summit” in conjunction with policy makers, corporate, education and community leaders will work to help outline a plan to create jobs in California and exemplify how Hispanics play a significant role in California’s Economy.

The mission of this summit is simple: How can businesses, government, labor, and higher education work together to address the challenges of California’s current economic climate, and in turn, develop long-term solutions for the future of our economy.

This event will convene business leaders and elected officials, community leaders and policy experts through key note speakers, and interactive panel. This is a great opportunity to connect with California state representatives, business leaders, and various other influential figures from our state.
