CWHCC: Expanded Broadband Access for Hispanics Key to Job Growth

Improving access to business and educational opportunities is a central focus of the Central  Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. The CWHCC takes great pride in being a venue for  Hispanic entrepreneurs, leaders and professionals throughout the Yakima Valley and Central Washington to come together to share ideas in support of each other.  As president of the CWHCC, I’m dedicated to helping Hispanics form connections in order for our community to prosper.

One of the most important tools our members have to make connections is high speed Internet access.  Broadband provides small business leaders with the capacity to connect with markets worldwide to offer their products and services. 

Last month, the unemployment rate in Washington state stood at 9.3 percent.  As our members strive to weather the economic challenges impacting our nation and our state, broadband Internet access has become even more important as they seek to access information, connect with customers, compete in the global marketplace and create opportunities for growth.  Additionally, broadband allows students and their parents to tap into distance education and training programs in order to prepare for the tests of our changing economy.

The unique advantages of broadband to the Hispanic community are growing every day.  The Central Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is proud to be leading the way in promoting access to, and adoption of, broadband in the growing Hispanic community in Washington State.
