The Douglas County Chamber announced the launch of their strategic partnership with the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GHCC) as their newest initiative to promote inclusive economic growth and development. The alliance between the organizations seeks to foster the relationships between Hispanic and Non-Hispanic businesses, elected officials, governmental agencies and industry leaders. The announcement was made during the GreyStone Power Luncheon on September 17th.
Minority business development is a critical component of Georgia’s economy as Georgia is home to a diverse business community of large and small companies across various sectors, which employ and serve a multicultural demographic. The Douglas County Chamber and Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce recognize the strength and success of collaboration and cooperation and will actively promote the economic growth, development, and interests of minority-owned businesses in the community. Through the partnership, both organizations will provide co-branded programming, marketing and a Hispanic advisory committee.
The Douglas County Chamber and Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will officially launch their partnership on October 3rd from 5 – 7 p.m.. This event will be held at the Douglas County Chamber, located at 6658 Church Street in Douglasville. The event is free to attend and open to the public.
Douglas County Chamber President and CEO, Sara Ray, commented, “Our mission is to support and promote local businesses for the advancement of our community, and we are thrilled to partner with the GHCC to continue to support our mission with Hispanic business owners in Douglas County.”
“Our goal at the GHCC is to connect the Hispanic business community with existing local resources that can help them grow their businesses. We are proud to partner with the Douglas County Chamber, as they reach out to Hispanic businesses”, commented Santiago Marquez, Georgia Hispanic Chamber President and CEO.
