LACCC President & CEO

Dear members,

It is a privilege to represent your interest and to work with a forward-thinking board of directors, partners, sponsors, and TEAM. My priority will be to learn about the challenges and opportunities that our members and our organization are currently facing and to be keen to listen to different perspectives and possible solutions. I am encouraged and excited about the tremendous growth opportunities I see ahead, to grow the Chamber, uplift our members, and become a model of inclusion in Charlotte!

As we move forward and plan for the years to come, we will be focused on strengthening our community through member services, education, advocacy, and creating a movement of growth and resilience! We are entering a new era with a new sense of urgency, to stay ahead of the many paradigm shifts that our businesses are facing. Everyone is adapting to new ways of staying connected, learning, networking, selling, buying, etc. We have a great opportunity to redesign and recreate the value that we bring to our members, our community and our City at large. Let’s be encouraged and know that we will lead with innovation, thus futureproofing our businesses.

I will be reaching out to many industry bodies and professional institutions to work in close collaboration with all who seek to foster an inclusive business model and to help the Latinx community experience business growth, inclusion, and connection with the city at large. Above all my focus is the Chamber and you the members. I look forward to engaging with you!

On a final note, I thank Rocio Gonzalez for her dedication to the chamber and her passion for our mission. We will be working closely to ensure we build a community of abundance, connection, and resilience!
