President Barack Obama to Open USHCC Conference

President Barack Obama will open the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's 19th Annual Legislative Conference by delivering a keynote address to the leading advocate for the nation's Hispanic-owned businesses. The speech comes at the midpoint of the president's first 100 days in office, while he continues to develop plans and take unprecedented steps to spur the nation's economic recovery. The audience will consist of Hispanic entrepreneurs, small business owners, and other community leaders.

"We are extremely honored to have President Obama open the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's Legislative Conference," said David C. Lizárraga, USHCC Board Chairman. "We are privileged to have this transformative leader come to our event and engage the Hispanic community. In the few short weeks since he assumed the presidency, President Obama has made many sweeping and necessary strides to reset the course of our nation and lead us toward full economic recovery. We still have a long way to go, but his actions since January 20th have demonstrated a clear vision and a commitment to boldly engage Hispanics. At the same time, we will use this opportunity to share with him our concerns and priorities-as business leaders, as Hispanics, and as Americans-on how we can contribute to the renewed prosperity of our nation."

President Obama's speech will kick off two full days of workshops, discussions, and meetings with a wide variety of policy and decision makers throughout the nation's capital. The conference will cover several topics that President Obama himself addressed before a joint session of Congress less than two weeks ago. Education reform, health care reform, renewable energy, and other topics top the list of concerns of Hispanic entrepreneurs and small business owners.

President Obama made U.S. history by becoming the first person of minority descent to serve as President of the United States. He has taken office during the nation's most challenging economic period since the Great Depression. His administration has taken several dramatic steps in a short period to help the nation begin its economic recovery, including a massive economic stimulus package, a revision of TARP, sweeping proposals to rebuild the mortgage market, and actions to reform both health care and education.
