CVHCC reaches membership goal

Congratulations CVHCC for reaching your membership goal and membership retention.

Central Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Christine Schweininger, CEO and Board are proud to
announce that CVHCC has reached their milestone membership goal through determination and hard
work. We would like to thank Stanislaus County businesses for their support and commitment to the
Chamber. Over the past two years CVHCC has grown by leaps and bounds to reach this milestone of
business and individual memberships. It is because of this growth that CVHCC was awarded Chamber of
the Year by the California State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
This goal was achieved because of the members and businesses who have shared their chamber
experience with others and recommended joining CVHCC. In addition, CVHCC has 25 Ambassadors who
in their daily travels have talked to business owners and entrepreneurs about the benefits of being a
Chamber member. Each month the CVHCC newsletter is sent to its membership announcing new
members, renewing members and Chamber activities. The activities range from workshops, ribbon
cuttings, mixers and events that CVHCC members are having in the upcoming month.
In 1998 CVHCC was established in South San Joaquin County and moved the chamber to Stanislaus
County in 2017 and hit the ground running. In two short years, we established an office in downtown

Modesto, and became a 501(c) (3) to further benefit our goal of promoting education. Through our non-
profit status, this year the Chamber is happy to announce that we will be awarding (4) scholarships to

students and will give (2) laptops to students who register and attend the education workshop.
Some of the benefits of being a Chamber member include cross promotion of a member’s events on all
CVHCC social media, invitations to participate in workshops, and of course the most important benefit,
advocating for small businesses. This year we will be adding a new signature event, “The American
Promise and Entrepreneurship”. It will showcase a story or two about businesses that overcame
obstacles to achieve their goal to become a flourishing business.
Christine Schweininger, CEO and the CVHCC Board are proud of how much the Chamber has grown in
the last few years. Through strong vision, hard work and team effort, anything is possible.
