Chairman’s Report

mike-zapata-chairman-new-england-financialWelcome to the Arlington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. This year has been a great year of renewed optimism and commitment to our Hispanic business community. Our city continues to grow and continues to receive the type of attention and visibility that it deserves as a result of continued development in the area of entertainment, retail, and commercial growth. The following are activities that the chamber has undertaken to contribute to the growth and development of our city, our business community and to our families and children:

The most important asset is our membership and the Greater Arlington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will begin showcasing its reMEMBERE software. This software developed by CompuSol, Inc. provides the tools to service our members with the most efficient and highest level of productivity. Our members’ information will be available at our fingertips.

The reMEMBER program was designed to assist in the management of membership and event tracking functions for organizations such as chambers of commerce or non-profit organizations. Its various modules will also assist with other aspects of the Chamber’s business, including accounting and reporting procedures.

The program allows us to compile detailed profiles of our membership with features to track referrals, keep detailed comments and generate mailings.

Included is a monthly calendar option to track theSingapore Business district night view

  • Attendance
  • Planning
  • Budgeting of Special Events

A financial module provides options for the invoicing of membership dues, event billing, product sales, and tracking yearly versus monthly budgeting variances or other financial transactions.

The software also assists in generating new members by keeping directory listings and displaying event calendars on-line via the Internet for up-to-date information to the public. New members will be able to enroll online as well. The reMEMBER program will give your Chamber an opportunity to increase its membership levels and retention with this easy-to-use software.

**Members – Please make sure that the Chamber is current with your business information (phone, fax, website,e-mail, address, etc.**
