Our members benefit from the Chamber’s advocacy efforts locally in the following ways:
- Meeting with City representatives to discuss issues related to small businesses including the citys mandatory apprenticeship program and wage theft ordinance
- Speaking at City Council on behalf of our small businesses in regards to issues that affect them
- Bringing city and county officials to speak to our small businesses and listen to their concerns
- Work with City and County departments such as Planning and Inspections and Economic Development to help small businesses solve whatever issues they may have.
- Working with the City, the County, and the school districts to ensure that small, minority, veteran, and women owned business goals are included in all projects
- Testifying on initiatives and legislations to effectively advocate the business position on pending public policy issues
- Regular surveys sent to our members to get input on the main challenged faced by our local businesses as well as the economic climate.
It is critical to be an active, engaged, member in the community and we understand it.
We want to be the voice of your business. The success of our small businesses translates into a successful community, hence our dedication to assisting and serving the Hispanic business community and our extensive work to advocate on behalf of our members.
You are more than welcome to send us your concerns, testimonies, comments, for us to consider. On many occasions, your EPHCC offers the Chamber’s input on business issues. Our voice, is your voice. Contact Michelle Luevano, Advocacy Specialist at 915.566.4066
