Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce To Host Legislative Summit In D.C.

 

 

 

March event hosts top elected officials and highlights key policy issues affecting the Hispanic business community

WASHINGTON, -- The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) will host its 20th Annual Legislative Summit in Washington, D.C., from March 22 - 24, 2010. Still celebrating its 30th anniversary, the USHCC offers this unique three-day event, which will provide participants with an unparalleled opportunity to hear directly about today's urgent policy and business concerns from key administration officials and top legislators representing the full political spectrum. The dynamic workshops will address the practical implications for business owners of such issues as financial services reform, green energy, broadband internet, telecommunications regulation and access to capital. Participants cap-off the Summit with ample time to visit elected representatives on Capitol Hill.

David C. Lizarraga, USHCC Chairman of the Board said: "So many of the rules and regulations that will impact small businesses for a generation are being designed and debated in Washington right now. The Hispanic business community and its allies must be at the table to ensure those changes provide opportunities and do not pose obstacles." He emphasized that to be included and represented effectively, the Hispanic business community must deepen relationships in Congress and maintain a high profile with key decision makers on Capitol Hill and the Administration. "This Legislative Summit is the perfect forum for that," added Lizarraga.

"I encourage everyone from the executive suite to the neighborhood store to join fellow Hispanic business owners and the leaders of Hispanic chambers of commerce from around the country in advocating for those issues that impact our community," said Javier Palomarez, President and CEO of the USHCC. "Participation at this event is critical to effectively convey our views and show strength in unity and numbers. We must speak up, be heard and be counted on those policies now debated in our nation's capitol. At no time in recent memory has the case for attending been stronger," he concluded.
