The future is bright for the Hispanic Chamber

Luis Campos, City of Easton, Hispanic Chamber of the Lehigh Valley Chair

It has been an exciting and rewarding experience serving as the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of the Lehigh Valley (HCCLV) Chairperson. I have served as Chairperson for the last six years and have been involved with the HCCLV since its inception in 2003.

Along the way, I have had the opportunity to work with many individuals who have been as enthusiastic and motivated to build a business member organization. I am proud of the many accomplishments produced by the HCCLV including: the creation of the Fe Foundation in 2008, the merger with the GLVCC in 2014, supporting a policy position with the GLVCC on immigration reform, and experiencing overall growth year after year since opening our doors. The future is bright for the Hispanic Chamber!

Our committees are aggressive and filled with members that show the same excitement that sparked the creation of the organization. This year’s expansion into downtown Easton and areas that have not been explored is particularly promising. As the Latino community continues to grow, so does the HCCLV and its efforts to create a vibrant business environment that all can benefit.

This July, my term (serving since 2012) will expire as the HCCLV Chair. Even though I will no longer be the chairperson, I will continue to serve on the board and support the mission of the organization. I am looking forward to working with the new Chairperson, Victor Salicetti, as we continue to grow and explore opportunities.
