“I moved to Charlotte in 2015 without any family or friends. I came to US as an international student and the Latin American Chamber of Commerce opened it’s door to me as a volunteer. That opportunity allowed me to meet new friends, meet my now husband and presented me with an opportunity to find my first job in the US. LACCC is a wonderful place to network and grow while at the same time helping welcome others to our community. I am proud to be now a member, sometimes volunteer, and be part of this community”

“As a micro business owner in Charlotte, being part of the LACCC has been incredibly valuable. Not only have I made important connections to grow my business, but I have learned new skills and options available for entrepreneurs, women in business and minorities that I didn’t know I could access.
I am also very grateful for the opportunity to participate in their educational programs. I recently participated in their Advanced Business Builder program and found it to be meticulously designed and presented in such a way that it helped me build a stronger business plan and it motivated me to keep working on developing a successful business.
From now on, I feel strongly about sharing my experience with others like me, everybody needs to know that this is a great resource that will benefit their business immensely.”

“Last year I had the opportunity to participate in the Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Charlotte Small Business Expo. I had just started my journey as a solo practitioner one month before the event took place. The LACCC was extremely supportive and helpful and found a sponsor for me to have a booth at the Expo and promote my new small business. During the event, I was able to network with other business owners and found two new clients. In addition, I met the persons in charge of a local radio station and ended up having my own radio show about Immigration Law. Today I am one of the Managing Partners of Cano Rivera Law, an Immigration Law Firm, and we cannot wait to be present in this year’s LACCC’s Small Business Expo and connect with our community.”

“I came to the US to study my MBA at UNCC in 2016, during that period I was invited to attend the LACCC Annual Meeting and got impressed by their support and connectivity with the Latin American Business Community.
Once I graduated, I got the opportunity to make an internship with them, but also, they gave me the tools and guidance to start my own business. Since then, I’ve been participating in their educational programs and networking events that have helped me to grow my business.
I can’t explain how grateful I’m with the LACCC. Thank you so much for your support and friendship.”

“I have been a member of the Charlotte Latin American Chamber on an off since 2005. I have worked at different companies and have always asked for those companies to join the chamber. I try to attend a variety of events but mostly the luncheons. It is always great to hear a guest that I bring to the luncheons be amazed at the level of professionalism and the quality of the guest speakers. It is a testament to the hard work the chamber puts in to make certain perceptions be dismissed. The question I get the most is always do I need to speak Spanish to attend an event. Once someone attends they will understand the great diversity that exists and the great work the chamber promotes. Thank you for all your hard work I look forward to seeing you at another event.”
