Las Vegas Latin Chamber of Commerce Luncheon
The Las Vegas Latin Chamber of Commerce held its monthly luncheon for July at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino’s Ballroom area on Friday, July 20, 2012 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. This event was sponsored by Cox Communications and Steve Schorr, Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for Cox Communications was also the MC of the event. During the event instead of the usual “please silence your cellphones”, Schorr requested for those attending kept their cell phones on during the event’s presentations, even to bring in iPads, tablets, and any other web enabled devices, in order for them to demonstrate their new Cox Business Hotspot service. This service will allow businesses to offer Wi-Fi service inside their offices to patrons, and it is easy to use. All guests got to experience the new Wi-Fi internet service while inside the luncheon venue.
During the event speakers Ardell Galbreth, Interim Executive Director of the Workfoce Connections, and Dr. Rene Cantu, executive Director of the Latin Chamber Community Foundation and recently appointed CCSD Trustee Board member, spoke about two opportunities that encourage businesses to participate in On the Job Training programs; placing workers with subsidized wages for defined periods of time to help you work efficiently and give them hands on experience. Also available are youth career readiness, education, mentoring and assistance programs which have been designed to prepare teens for future careers. These programs not only train them professionally but help them finishing school or connecting with jobs; they place them on the right paths for success.
