Dear Chamber Members, Supporters and Stakeholders,

It is my distinct privilege to serve as Chairwoman of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana. It is with excitement and high hopes that I begin my term as Chair. It’s no secret that the past two years have been challenging for businesses and organizations of all sizes. However, I am excited for what our future holds. I am confident that by working together and with the strength and experience gained, we will come out better than ever. I am proud of all the great work we have done and continue to do. None of this would be possible without Mayra, our Chamber staff and our amazing Board of Directors.

In alignment with our mission to grow and foster the economic growth, development and promotion of Hispanic businesses and their associations, the Chamber has again produced a slate full of opportunities for this year. Our events are geared towards growing your network, business and accessing opportunities. I invite you to join us at our upcoming networking nights, seminars, trade show and our signature Excelencia Gala. Also, if you are a young professional, please check out our Young Professionals; they are doing amazing work! If you are a new Chamber member or have not joined us at an event recently, I encourage you to come out and get involved. I promise you will make meaningful connections that will last years to come. As a member, you contribute directly to the growth of our nationally recognized, award-winning chamber! Please visit us at www.hispanicchamberla.com for more information.

In closing, I would like to give my sincere appreciation to our sponsors, members, and community partners. We are here for you; YOU are the Chamber! Please let me know if myself or the Chamber can help in any way. I look forward to working with you throughout 2022 and beyond!

Raiza Pitre

HCCL Board Chair, 2022-2023
