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:

2. Met with the Texas Rangers to discuss enhancing communications between both parties and to develop future partnering and procurement opportunities for members.

3. Continue to achieve a great level of success in the current membership drive. We are seeing new members from both small business owners and the corporate world.
