RICHMOND, Va. -- The Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is keeping its members informed amidst the many changes in daily life due to the coronavirus.
President and founder Michel Zazur says when the pandemic started it was important to get the information out in Spanish to his members and the Hispanic community.
They started a special Eblast alert and encouraged members to sign for the organization’s email distribution. He also recommended that members check the organization’s website for a list of resources available for the community and the business community.
The chamber is involved in helping businesses apply online for unemployment and is offering workshops that include classes, workshops, and is working with other organizations like Google, Comcast, and local and national leaders like Sen. Tim Kaine.
Zazur says due to the shutdown, the chamber’s annual Que Pasa Festival scheduled for May 2, has been postponed but he is looking at alternative dates.
He advises members to continue to check their website for more information on Que Pasa and other programs.
