The Northern Virginia (NOVA) Chapter

of the

Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

cordially invites you to its monthly

Business Leaders Luncheon


Topic: "Discovering New Business Opportunities For Your Business Through Active Participation in the Northern Virginia (NOVA) Chapter."

We are living through difficult economic times. You are not alone in wondering what tomorrow will bring. But dwelling in despair breeds more despair; worrying and not seeking help leads to failure. "When the going gets tough, only the tough gets going," is a popular saying. For every dark cloud, there is a silver lining . . . and we will help you find it. When your banker, vendor or landlord don't listen, we do. And through our network of independent experts, we offer you reliable professional help. Jorge will talk about what the MAHCC is and what it does, and its track record in creating new businesses, expanding existing ones, and assisting business owners in managing their operations profitably.  Jackie will present the 2009 agenda for the NOVA Chapter and, through interviews and questionnaires, she and her team of volunteers will find out what really matters to you, what are your needs and concerns, as well as learn from you what you can do for your Chamber and share with you what your Chamber can do for you.

Speakers: Jacqueline (Jackie) Krick (ECU Communications), MAHCC NOVA Chapter Vice President, and Jorge Ribas, MAHCC President.
