The Salem Chamber and the Latino Business Alliance are striving to create a stronger, more unified business community through increasing opportunities for education and mentoring between Latinos and non-Latinos.
As a Chamber member, you can support this goal by choosing the LBA Partner addon to your Chamber membership. In addition to gaining full membership in the Latino Business Alliance, you’re helping to create additional educational and networking content to expand the business reach and cultural competence of Chamber and LBA members.
Latino-owned businesses are the fastest growing sector of the U.S. economy, creating jobs and economic growth across the country. According to the 2007 U.S. Census, Latinos account for nearly 44 percent of the population growth in Oregon alone. By 2012, Latinos represented over $4.5 billion in purchasing power for the state, and $881 million in the Salem Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA).
Targeted educational presentations on workforce issues, sales, cultural influences and communication challenges.
Build new relationships with businesses seeking to excel in Salem’s growing economy.
Expand your business reach at a different level as you engage businesses and entrepreneurs across cultural boundaries.
