Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to hold monthly luncheon

The Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is holding its monthly General Membership Networking Luncheon Sept. 19, where attendees can hear from local business leaders and see the contributions the Latino community makes for the region’s small businesses.

The event will be held at the Red Lion Hotel in Pasco at 11:30 a.m..

Despite the name, non-members are also encouraged to attend and network with the luncheon’s varied attendees, said Maria Delamora, an administrator for the Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s a good way for you to network and get to know the Hispanic community, and to see how important the Latino community is for small businesses,” Delamora said.

The event will begin with networking opportunities for a half hour as attendees get settled-in. There will then be a keynote presentation, along with a luncheon provided by the chamber.

“15 Minutes from Everywhere,” will be the topic of the luncheon’s presentation by keynote speaker Michael Novakovich, president and CEO of Visit Tri-Cities, touching on the unique economic and metropolitan situation of the Tri-Cities.

“A lot of people don’t realize how close resources are,” Delamora said. “It doesn’t matter where you are in Tri-Cities. Wherever you are, you’re 15 minutes away from everything.” Delamora said.

The chamber will also run workshops and Spanish-language seminars in the evening, Delamora said.

“Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll probably find it here,” Delamora said.

The Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce holds a networking luncheon on the third Tuesday of every month except July and December. The chamber also holds a number of other community events during the year, including an annual Mariachi and More Festival in June and an annual Gala Dinner in December.

The event is 20$ for members and $25 for non-members. Employees of member organizations also qualify for the member discount.
