TAMACC is most fortunate to have the participation of Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa. Since being first elected to the Texas Legislature in 1981, he has been a tireless supporter of Latino business, not only for District 20, but for all of Texas,” said Roland Barrera, TAMACC Chairman of the Board.

State Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa proudly represents the people of Senate District 20. Senator Hinojosa was first elected into office in 1981, serving in the Texas House until 1990 and again from 1997 to 2002. In 2002, Hinojosa was elected to the Texas Senate. He has championed legislation in education, healthcare and transportation to create jobs, boost the economy and develop the state’s infrastructure needs. Senator Hinojosa’s efforts have brought millions in funding to support the economic growth of Senate District 20, composed of Brooks, Hidalgo, Jim Wells, and Nueces Counties. During the 2013 Legislative Session, Hinojosa authored SB 24, historic legislation that will merge UT-Pan American and UT-Brownsville and create a free standing medical school in South Texas. The expansion of educational opportunities will create greater access to healthcare and will be a great boost to the South Texas economy.

The convention provides endless opportunities for the attendees from around the state: procurement with state agencies, universities, local municipalities and other businesses; tools to help a business grow; networking with leaders that may inspire entrepreneurs to start their own business; or an individual who likes to know what is happening around the state; meeting sponsors and Fortune 500 companies; workshops and speakers discussing a variety of topics that may impact your community; best practices discussions with Hispanic Chamber and Business Organizations; and networking where people do business with people.
