2020 was a year of aspirations for success for the Hispanic chamber with plans of innovative ideas and programs. However, COVID-19 changed all plans with the Pandemic government imposed restrictions.
Despite the complications and difficulties experienced, the FCHCC President and FCHCC Leadership joined hands to make the best of the situation, shifted gears by rising to the challenge.
The fact that our organization’s loyal members did not waver in their usual support, played a significant role with our achievements. We would have not been able to succeed without them by our side.
All events implemented were successful with the new modality of Virtual Professional Networking Events featuring topics directed to support the business community and the community at large from the devastating effects of COVID-19.
