Opportunities Grow for Hispanic Businesses in
Anne Arundel County

Baltimore, MD—March 19, 2018—The Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (MDHCC), the leading chamber of commerce representing and connecting over 60,000 Hispanic-owned businesses in the region, continues to expand business partnerships in Anne Arundel County.

As part of the MDHCC’s recent launch of its first chapter, which serves the Greater Baltimore region, the chamber has been increasingly focused on partnering with local organizations and government officials in Anne Arundel County to expand programming that benefits minority-owned businesses. The Greater Baltimore Regional Chapter (GBRC) leadership team has both been orchestrating new events and programs for 2018 as well as promoting opportunities hosted by our partners in the region.

Most recently, the Chamber announced new Hispanic business workshops presented by the Anne Arundel County Government, and sponsored by the MDHCC and its partners at the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation. The workshops, which will all be conducted in Spanish, will be offered from March through May of 2018 in Annapolis.

“We appreciate the growing investment of Hispanic businesses in our county,” said Anne Arundel County Executive, Steve Schuh. “This workshop series follows last fall’s creation of Arundel United, an initiative to celebrate the diversity of our county and offer programs to support our immigrant communities. These business workshops and our partnership with the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce speak to our commitment to make Anne Arundel County not just a place to start a business but one where Hispanic entrepreneurs can thrive.”

Schuh, who was nominated as Outstanding Elected Official of the Year at the MDHCC’s 2018 Business Awards Holiday Gala, has been an ardent supporter of minority businesses, especially Hispanic-owned businesses, in his county.

“There is still a lot of work ahead of us,” said Corina Morga, MDHCC’s Greater Baltimore Regional Chapter (GBRC) President, “but it is only with win-win partnerships throughout the GBRC that we are able to make an impact on the establishment, growth, retention and prosperity of Hispanic-owned businesses,” she continued. “County Executive Schuh, his team, and the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation have all been wonderful partners to our chamber and our community at large,” she concluded.
