With computers in American homes being equal to or perhaps more numerous than television sets, and with the Internet becoming a preeminent and multifaceted communication tool, businesses cannot longer ignore its value as a marketing and transactional tool. The Chamber, cognizant of this fact, offers its members the opportunity to advertise on its multiple websites in order to help them open new markets and reach consumers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and, if necessary, anywhere in the world. The investment on online advertising is pennies a day compared to static advertisement on both legacy print and electronic media.
Mr. Luis Lobo, President of BB&T Washington Metropolitan Region, is the current Chairman of the Board of Advisors of the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He has more than 23 years of banking experience. He joined BB&T in 1983, and has served in most facets of commercial, retail, mortgage and international banking. . .
The Chamber's success as a leader in organized business and as a force of good in the region depends not only on the services it provides to its dues-paying members, but also on its sound governance, the quality and effectiveness of its programs, its innovative solutions and its value-added investments in the different communities it serves. As a proactive organization engaged in a wide range of activities, the Chamber requires outside expert advice. . .

As part of its workforce development strategy, the Chamber is establishing a nonprofit organization tasked with the mission of increasing graduation rates and raising academic standards in public education. In addition, the Chamber hopes to expand existing programs in parental education and adult English literacy programs as well as to encourage young people to pursue higher education and choose careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Management (STEMM).
In early 2004, the MAHCC Board of Directors adopted the Standards for Excellence® of the Maryland Association of Nonprofit Organizations as a guideline for the Chamber's organization and growth and as a reflection of the Chamber's founding culture and its future direction.
