US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce reception

In the evening went I with my beautiful wife Iris and her sister Alma to a reception at the Opryland Hotel. The reception was hosted by Robert Chavez of the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. The U.S. SBA, (Small Business Association) is holding a conference where they match buyers and suppliers. There will be 800 businesses participating in the conference. There I discussed blogs with David Lizarraga, Chair, Board of Directors of the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Lizarraga talked about the importance of the SBA to Hispanic businesses. There are about 2 million Hispanic businesses in the U.S. The US Hispanic Chamber will hold an Annual Legislative Conference from April 19-20 in Washington, DC. At the conference they will use "The Power of Advocacy" to advance the cause of Hispanic businesses. It was great to see so many of my friends including my good friend Eliud Trevino at the reception.
