Members of the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance will talk about programs the chamber has to support and attract Latino businesses Friday when it hosts the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs.
The Commission works to advise the governor on policies and legislation that impact Latino American communities.
GACLA and its commissioners have served Pennsylvania’s growing Latino community since 1971. The commission is composed of 20 volunteer members appointed by the governor for a two-year term.
The chamber will also give an update on the Berks Women2Women’s Mujer a Mujer leadership development program.
The Berks Latino Workforce Development Board and GACLA Executive Director, Luz Colon, will discuss events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which is Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.
