This Week's Meeting
August 17, 2017
 
Our Speaker this week is Carlos Gomez, President of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce KC. His topic is "Impact of the Hispanic Community on the Kansas City Economy."
Mr. Gomez graduated from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas with a double degree, a Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing and a B.B.A. in Management. Carlos has extensive branding experience from the Retail Sector, working for Electronic Retail Giant Best Buy in Management for 18 years. Carlos is Credited with Best Buy’s Implementation of Latin Music throughout the company, assisting with the first test Market store for the Company. Carlos’s involvement with the community is vast, he is a former Planning Commissioner for the City of Topeka, chairing fundraisers for Our Lady of Guadalupe Grade School, volunteering with Junior Achievement, El Centro of Topeka, the west Topeka Rotary Club, The Topeka Chamber of Commerce and is on the Boards of Swope Medical Enterprises, The Kansas Business Hall of Fame, EDC Board, and Full Employment Council to name a few.
 
Under Carlos’s Leadership the Chamber is now the 11th Largest Chamber in the Kansas City Metro out of 40 plus Chambers/Business membership organizations according to Ingrams and is the 15th Largest Chamber in the Region according to the Kansas City Business Journal. The Hispanic Chamber has implemented a very successful Small business Contracting Program, “Procurement One on Ones” which now take place quarterly matching small businesses to Corporate, Government, Medical, & Educational buyers. Carlos also serves as the Executive Director of the Greater Kansas City Hispanic Collaborative which is the 501c3 sister organization to the Hispanic Chamber. Four programs comprise the Collaborative, KC Bizfest, the Latinos of Tomorrow, the Young Latino Professionals and The Latino Leadership Institute which was established to teach Hispanics and Women how to serve on boards and commissions. The Chamber has also launched a Series of workshops and Seminars that are facilitated in Spanish to serve the needs of the growing Spanish speaking business Community.
We are happy to announce the launching of “People of Rotary” on Facebook.  https://www.facebook.com/peopleofrotary/
