"We are very pleased to have selected the City of Oakland as the site of our 43rd Annual Statewide Convention," said Julian Canete, President and CEO, California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, in a statement. "Oakland is such a vibrant and energetic city with a wonderful diverse population and an array of many cultures. Our members are excited over visiting Oakland and enjoying its fantastic culinary scene, arts, music, attractions and all the city has to offer."
The opportunity to listen to local chamber leaders and their plans to keep Oakland's business community thriving will be given, in addition to learning about the University of California, San Francisco's (UCSF) future investments in Oakland.
"The 2022 convention theme is BE ALL IN, highlighting the tenacity, dedication, grit, perspective of our diverse small business owners, their outlook in pursuing their dreams and ambitions. As our organization grows and thrives, we seek inspiration from individuals who are willing to take risks and inspire," Oakland Latino Chamber of Commerce, said.

"We look forward to celebrating as a business community the success we have grown together and to reinvent an economic future we are driving together," Oakland Latino Chamber of Commerce, said.
"We're big believers that a lot of the ills we experience whether in business success or getting loans, it's all knowledge-based," Julian Canete, President and CEO of the statewide body, added.
