The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Yolo County and the North Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce are merging and will jointly form the NVHCC. The move will be effective Wednesday, July 27.

In 1983, the Hispanic Chamber of Yolo County was formed with a handful of local citizens that saw the needs of the Hispanic business community not being met. After 28 years of continuous operations, the Chamber serves as one of the principal entities providing assistance to the Hispanic business community, a news release said.

“Now more than ever, with the troubles in our economy, collaboration is needed,” said Silvina Salcedo, president of the HCCYC, in the news release. “I am very happy that this effort is moving forward. We will be able to support our business’s regionally throughout many communities.”

The North Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was established in 2008 and equally serves the areas to the north of Yolo County. The well-established group focuses on facilitating the building of partnerships between local community leaders and Chamber members. These partnerships are designed to allow Hispanic businesses and other members of the community to better understand the contribution that they each make to the growth and development of the North Central Valley.

“The North Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce welcomes with open arms the addition of Yolo County into its service area,” said Adrian Lopez, president of the NVHCC, in the news release. “The merger is a momentous occasion, one which will allow us to better serve the ever-growing Latino market in the North Central Valley of California, and provide additional resources and services to Hispanic owned business in Yolo County. Our goal will continue to be to work with all members of the community to improve the economic vitality of our region.”

Activities like the Woodland Tomato Festival at Freeman Park on Aug. 13 and the Black and White Gala at the Colusa Casino Resort on Aug. 25 will continue to be supported by the Chamber.

The enlarged Chamber will now encompass and represent members from Colusa, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.

Talks of the merger started in May of this year when past HCCYC Secretary Debra Chase was asked by past President Jon Lindo of F & F Multiprint to help the HCCYC expand. She approached Lopez, the NVHCC president, and coordinated a meeting between the two boards.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity for members to blend business activities and support our communities throughout the northern region of California,” Lindo said. ” This will redefine our traditional boundaries and further our efforts to maximize benefits and keep costs down.”

The first mixer of the newly expanded North Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is planned at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, at Silvina’s Basket Restaurant, 816 Main St. in Woodland. Members and nonmembers are all welcome to attend. To RSVP, email info@nvhcc.org or call (530) 923-7665. For more information about the NVHCC, visit http://www.nvhcc.org.
