S

ara Gonzalez was always passionate about her Latin roots and a champion for all Hispanics and Hispanic issues. Early on, at a time when most people did not know Latin food, she eagerly shared her love for Cuban food and Latin culture with Atlanta through her restaurant, Sarita’s. Later she dedicated her talent for community relations and fundraising to helping grow Atlanta’s social service nonprofit, the Latin American Association. When the Olympics came

to Atlanta, Sara was tapped by them to direct their Hispanic initiatives. Later in 1996, she was hired as President and CEO of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Under her leadership, the Chamber’s role in Atlanta grew in significance. As a result of her efforts, membership increased from 172 to nearly 1,000 members today. Sara also launched many important new programs and services: In 2001 the Chamber established the pioneering business incubator HACED, the

Over the years, Sara has been recognized by local, national and international media for her work. She’s been featured in college textbooks, in museum exhibitions and she received numerous awards. Most recently Sara was honored with the prestigious Civic Venture Purpose Prize, which honors the country’s highest achieving social entrepreneurs.Sara Gonzalez was immensely proud of the GHCC, her staff, her colleagues as well as the Latino community and all immigrants who come to this country to better themselves and make positive contributions. She was loyal in her devotion and respect for all of us. She was our friend, mentor, leader, and our inspiration. She will continue to inspire as we build upon her foundation of work. Sara left us on February 18, 2008, but through our efforts her legacy will live on forever in our hearts, actions and progress.

Letter from Interim President and CEO

¡Hola! It has been quite a few months as many things have transpired since our winter newsletter. On a sad note, we experienced the unexpected passing of our GHCC President on February 18th. Thank you to all of you who sent flowers, made donations and expressed your sentiments. It has been a difficult time and adjustment, but we are honored and happy to report that the GHCC is doing very well with many exciting things to report. This year we welcomed a new Board of Directors and unveiled a new strategic planning and overall vision for the next five years. We are on track with continued growth and plans for positive impact in the community. In line with our goals, the Annual Hispanic Business and Career Expo was a success. It took place on April 2, 2008, and attracted more than 600 attendees who networked, established contacts and promoted themselves and their business. Thanks to all who came and participated. During this quarter many of our efforts have also been focused on the May 31st Annual Awards Gala. We are thrilled to report that we have exceeded our sponsorships from last year and attendance is expected to be close to 1,000. We have a stellar line up for the evening, including Frank Blake, Chairman & CEO of the Home Depot. Please join us to make this Gala the most memorable and successful ever. The GHCC staff and I would like to acknowledge the board members whose term ended on April 24th. Thanks to our Past-Chair, Al Moreno, and all the board members for your leadership and guidance. We deeply appreciate your commitment to the Chamber. I also would like to welcome our new Chair, Gabriel Vaca, and all the new members joining our board. The GHCC staff and I look forward to working with another remarkable group of individuals. Lastly, on a personal note, I would be remiss if I did not thank the Board for their support these past months during this transition. It was an honor for me to accept the position of Interim President and CEO, and as such I aim to lead the GHCC through this time with dignity and grace while maintaining the high bar of success and community engagement which we always strive for. You all have made it a pleasure for me to embrace my commitment to continuing to serve our members, and promoting the economic development of Hispanic businesses in the State of Georgia. Sincerely, Sandra Font

VII Annual Hispanic Business & Career Expo

By Jordi Viñas

Breakfast & Learn Seminars

A T

he Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GHCC) hosted its VII Annual Hispanic Business & Career Expo at the Gwinnett Center on Wednesday, April 2, 2008. Throughout the years, exhibitor participation continued to expand reaching over ninety companies during this year’s event. The Luncheon Sponsor was Georgia Power, A Southern Company, and Nationwide Insurance. Terrance Williams Regional Vice President, Southern States Nationwide Insurance and Bryan Fletcher Vice President, Supply Chain Management, Southern Company, participated as keynote speakers for this well attended luncheon, which gathered 260 attendees.



The 2008 Business and Career Expo Sponsors were: Gold Level Anasteel & Supply Co. LLC, The Home Depot & UPS Silver Level: Interprint Communications Bronze Level: AFLAC, AT&T, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Empleos, Georgia Pacific, La Raza 102.3/100.1FM, Lockheed Martin, Mundo Hispanico, Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., Univision 34 Atlanta Affiliate Sponsors: Atlanta Latino Newspaper, Atlanta Tribune /The Magazine, DeVry University The VII Hispanic Business and Career Expo served two functions. First of all, it facilitated business-to-business opportunities between Hispanicowned businesses and Corporate America. Businesses also had the

opportunity to showcase their products and services not only to the Hispanic community, but also to nonHispanic businesses and consumers. Secondly, it was an excellent opportunity for both potential employers and potential employees to come together and seek mutually beneficial working relationships and opportunities. As one more Expo comes to a closing, we are interested in hearing from participants who secured jobs or established successful business contacts. We look forward to hearing about and celebrating your success stories. Finally, the GHCC staff would like to thank and recognize this year’s sponsors and exhibitors for once again ensuring the success of the VII Annual Hispanic Business & Career Expo. The GHCC would like to extend an invitation to next year’s event as it continues to grow.

s another benefit to our members, the GHCC is introducing a quarterly series of Breakfast & Learn seminars from numerous requests brought to us by our GHCC members.

These hour and a half-long sessions introduce members and non-members to business and professional people who can assist them with various aspects of their business such as research, marketing, finances, human resource management or information technology. With this setup you have the opportunity take time out for an informative seminar and get back to work before your second cup of coffee. Learning has never been so easy and tasteful! Demand is expected to be high and seating is limited. For more details, please contact Joanna Lindsey at 404-929-9998 or jlindsey@ghcc.org.

Legislative Committee Report

T

he Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has followed several bills of importance to the Hispanic business community and our members. The 2008 Legislative Session kept GHCC staff, Legislative Committee, and GHCC Board busy! Numerous visits to the Capitol were made, as well as the drafting of several letters of support for various bills requiring immediate action. Although the legislative session ended April 4, 2008, May 14th is the deadline for Governor Sonny Perdue to veto or sign into law legislation that passed during this year’s session. During the month of February, a letter was sent to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce’s President and CEO, George M. Israel, III, requesting his support, as well as the support of

“Finally, during the month of April, another letter was mailed to Governor Sonny Perdue stressing how the passing of Senate Bill 0488 was critical to demonstrate that we welcome international growth and foreign nationals coming to our State to do business.” 

the Government Affairs Council (GAC) leadership, with Senate Bill 0335. The letter highlighted the negative impact this legislation, also referred to as the English-only bill, would have upon the employment at will doctrine and how it would affect critically Georgia’s business community. The following month, the GHCC Board of Directors drafted a letter supporting Senate Bill 0488, a business-friendly legislation allowing foreign nationals to keep driver’s licenses. Finally, during the month of April, another letter was mailed to Governor Sonny Perdue stressing how the passing of Senate Bill 0488 was critical to demonstrate that we welcome international growth and foreign nationals coming to our State to do business.

owner´s spouse, child, or parent upon proof of relationship to the owner when such person displays an unexpired driver´s license. The GHCC followed this bill at the request of some of its members, and after much debate throughout the Session, the bill was amended numerous times to remove some of its negative impacts.  This bill passed out of the House and Senate and awaits the Governor’s signature.

Below is a summarized update on the status of both Senate and House bills the GHCC followed during the 2008 Georgia Legislative Session:

HR 1609 House Study Committee on Trade, Travel, and Security between Georgia and Western Hemisphere Trade Partners. This bill created this study committee, which will be active in 2008-2009.

HB 978: “Traffic accidents; illegal immigrants; seize vehicle; allow law enforcement”: This bill allows law enforcement officers to seize and impound the vehicle of a person who is operating the vehicle without drivers license (except in an emergency); the vehicle shall be released to the owner, or the

HB 1028: “Wire transmission; money received; provide fee”: This bill would have provided for a fee with respect to money received for wire transmission. The GHCC did not have a position on this bill but actively monitored; the bill did not pass out of the House.

SB 0335 “State Agencies; designate English as official language; prohibit requiring employees to speak/learn any other languages for employment” The GHCC worked in strong opposition against this bill, which would have prohibited State agen-

cies from allowing the ability to speak a second language to be a requirement/advantage for a job position within a particular agency. Although the bill moved quite far, ultimately, the bill died before passage and its defeat was a success. SB 0488 “Drivers’ Licenses; allow foreign nationals to keep license from their home country; exempt nonresidents; meet all licensing requirements in Georgia” This bill allows foreign nationals to keep their drivers licenses from their home countries when they move to Georgia. This is a bill that the consular corps and foreign nationals have wanted for quite some time, as previously, they had to relinquish their home country licenses in order to obtain a Georgia one.  Fortunately, the bill passed out of the House and Senate and awaits signature by the Governor. As this was the second and final year of this two year Legislative Session, all bills will die and we will begin 2009 with new legislation.  The GHCC will continue to monitor those bills of importance to the Hispanic business community, and we hope, as members, you will take an active role through involvement with our Legislative Committee.
