Dear Latino Chamber Members,
In these difficult times, the Latino Chamber of Commerce is responding to be sure we are meeting the needs of Latino small businesses here in Minnesota. You can go to our website at www.latinochambermn.com for resources as well as we are sending weekly newsletter out with information to support your business.
Fortunately, we live in a state that has tremendous response by the Governor Walz, his administration, and local officials. We also have a robust network of Latino nonprofits such as CLUES, LEDC, Latino Lead and others.
We want to ensure that our members are prepared as we exit this crisis, and to do that, we are waiving all fees for membership of small latino businesses throughout the remainder of 2020. The Latino Chamber MN wants your business to be prepared to take advantage of these opportunities that will be available when the economy opens up.
Things such as the below:
- Register your business with Secretary of State Office.
- Obtain certification as a WMBE Woman and Minority Business Enterprise will make you eligible for corporate and government supplier diversity efforts.
Reminder that if needed, the state and federal government can provide assistance for loans and grants. Information can be found on the MN DEED website by clicking here:
For our corporate members, we are encouraging you to post employment opportunities with our site. Please email opportunities to email@example.com.
Also, we are asking corporate members to consider a sponsorship of our website, business directory, digital newsletters and online business resource training programs to support efforts by the Latino Chamber to continue to deliver information to our communities. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are a resilient community and will get through this.
If you have already paid your 2020 membership, it will be applied to your 2021 dues!
Until we meet again,
Latino Chamber MN
