Latino Chamber to expand statewide

The Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County will shorten its name (dropping the Dane County part) and expand its services statewide, according to an article in the Wisconsin State Journal.

The Chamber, a business association for Latino and non-Latino businesses, is already the fastest growing minority chamber of commerce in the state, and now it wants to expand statewide to serve immigrant communities throughout Wisconsin, according to President and CEO Jessica Cavazos.

“Every immigrant community has set up a way of survival through commerce,” she told the State Journal. “If you don't have the education … the best way to actually create and make your dreams come true is through entrepreneurship.”
