Chairman’s Message

Dear SFLHCC Members:
The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has been exceptional in its ability to grow and develop with the needs of its membership, a quality no better demonstrated than this past year. Our organization exists to encourage business leadership, provide business and legislative insight, and create economic opportunity for our members. Obviously, we faced many challenges during 2020 in trying to satisfy our mission statement.

Even amidst the drastic disruption to normal life the COVID-19 pandemic has posed, the Chamber has leaned inwards to best support our members. Through virtual seminars, meetings, and having relevant conversations with business and governmental leaders, the Chamber has been exemplary in helping our members in their commercial and economic endeavors during these unprecedented times.

I was astounded by the dedication and passion the heart and soul of our organization, Lily Lopez, demonstrated as well as the entire Board of Directors and our team comprised of Anielka, Johanna, and Alicia P. And we are blessed to have Dariel Fernandez and Yendi Alvarez help us expand our social media footprint. Frankly, I could not be prouder of our organization as we steered through this a once in a lifetime event.

Today, I greatly encourage all members to get involved as much as possible as one’s involvement with the Chamber is truly what you make of it. I am confident that 2021 is going to be the first year of many exciting coming years filled with opportunities to expand relationships and our respective businesses. There are potential friendships, connections, and business opportunities within the chamber that I urge you to take advantage of them this year.

Finally, I would be remiss not to mention the friendship and guidance of the outgoing Chairman, Felipe Basulto. I hope to provide to our Chair-Elect, Jose Perez de Corcho, a fraction of the wisdom he imparted to me.

Roland Sanchez-Medina Jr.
