The Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys have a new chamber of commerce seeking to integrate and empower Spanish-speaking residents. KDNK's Raleigh Burleigh met Americas Chamber of Commerce President and Founder Paulina Navas, Executive Director John Lopez and Vicepresident Susana Salamun.
This is the first chamber of commerce in our valleys to focus specifically on providing resources for Spanish-speaking businesses and entrepreneurs.
On November 12, Garfield County Commissioners granted $2500 from their fourth quarter discretionary funds towards this new initiative. Additionally, Alpine Bank has become its first sponsor, with Latino Services Officer Susana Salamun and Latino Services Coordinator Lucy Moncada-Arcila serving as vice president and secretary on the board.
