"Building Relationships with Kansas City’s Hispanic Community"

NOTE: Please register by Friday Sept. 20. Thanks!

Did you know, the Hispanic community is one of the fastest-growing demographics in the U.S.? Join us for a frank discussion with Carlos Gomez of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater KC. He will present key insights that will help organizations build and maintain relationships with Kansas City’s growing Hispanic community.

The Hispanic Chamber is believed to be the fastest-growing Chamber in the KC area and includes corporate, small business, non-profit and individual members of all ethnicities. Gomez is a key member of the National Hispanic Chamber, and is called upon frequently to consult with other Hispanic Chambers around the country about growing relationships.

About Carlos

Carlos Gomez began his duties with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City and with the Hispanic Collaborative (Foundation of the Chamber) on Jan. 29, 2007. His focus for the Chamber is to ensure the Chamber is meeting the needs of the Small Business Community (in particular the Spanish Speaking Business Owner), lobbying for Small Business Legislation, Comprehensive Immigration Reform and to connect Corporate America, Government and others to the Hispanic Business Community and the Hispanic consumer.

Under his Leadership the Chamber is now the 11th largest chamber in the Kansas City Metro out of 40 plus chambers/business membership organizations according to Ingrams and is the 15th largest chamber in the region according to the Kansas City Business Journal.  

Gomez believes and places his focus on small business, he knows that if small business is successful than all businesses will be successful.
