Community : Presidential Proclamation: National Hispanic Heritage Month
Posted by admin on 2008/9/15 22:40:00 (1674 reads)

National Hispanic Heritage Month, 2008
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we recognize the many Americans of Hispanic descent who have made outstanding contributions to our Nation.

The rich cultural traditions of the Hispanic-American community have made a remarkable impact on American society. The diverse backgrounds of Hispanic Americans and their dedication to family have become an integral part of America. With a deep commitment to faith and a strong desire to live the American dream, these citizens are realizing the full blessings of liberty. Educational opportunities are helping a new generation work toward success, and many Hispanic Americans operate thriving small businesses.

We also honor Hispanic Americans for their strong tradition of service in the Armed Forces. These proud patriots have fought in every war since our founding, and many have earned the Medal of Honor for their courage. Hispanic service men and women have shown their love for the United States by answering the call to serve, and we owe them and their families a tremendous debt of gratitude. Their patriotism and valor have added to the character of our Nation.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit and accomplishments of Hispanic Americans everywhere. To honor those achievements, the Congress, by Public Law 100-402, as amended, has authorized and requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating September 15 through October 15 as "National Hispanic Heritage Month."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 15 through October 15, 2008, as National Hispanic Heritage Month. I call upon public officials, educators, librarians, and all the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twelfth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.

 The Forty Under 40 program was started in 1995 to identify and recognize the Tri-State's up-and-coming business, community and economic leaders. Since then, over 400 local individuals have become a Forty Under 40 alumnus and have been recognized for their business accomplishments and their contributions to the community.

Each year, the program kicks off with a nomination process in the spring. Nominations are collected by the Business Courier and handed over to an independent panel of judges. After the judges meet and make their selections, a new Forty Under 40 class is announced by the Business Courier in late summer. The new class is honored at an evening dinner and recognition ceremony in the fall, which this year will be on Thursday, Sept. 25th.

We would like to congratulate Dr. Daniel Conde , who is one of the selected winners. Daniel is very active in NSHMBA and in the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and he definitely deserves this award.

Business : Frank Venegas to speak at the OHCC Gala Dinner (Friday, Sept. 12th)
Posted by admin on 2008/9/2 1:30:00 (3073 reads)


Frank Venegas Jr., Chairman and CEO of Ideal Group Inc., will be the Keynote Speaker at the Ohio Hispanic Chambers of Commerce Gala Dinner on Sept. 12th .

Headquartered in the Southwest Detroit barrio known as Mexicantown, and employing 250 people, The Ideal Group companies’ combined 2007 annual revenues exceeded $151 million. In 2004, Inc. Magazine selected Venegas as one its of 25 America’s Most Fascinating Entrepreneurs and USHCC named Venegas as its 2004 Business Man of the Year. General Motors has awarded The Ideal Group its prestigious performance award, the GM Global Supplier of the Year (2002-2007) for Best in Class Construction Services and Material Management.

Venegas serves on the Board of Directors for the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and The Michigan Minority Business Development Council. He is also a member of the General Motors Global Council and is the current Co-Chair for the GM Supplier Diversity Council. He serves on the Tuck School of Business (Dartmouth University) Advisory Board and the University of Michigan – Dearborn Dean’s Advisory Council.

The Venegas rise from barrio to global entrepreneur is rooted in his desire to learn and his zeal to apply the lessons learned along the way. Frank committed early to his goals and believed he could achieve them and advises others to be likewise committed to their dreams. “If I told someone when I was young that I was going to have a $151 million-a-year business and do what we’ve done, most people probably would have said, ‘You can’t do it,’ and would have tried to talk me out of it,” he says. “But if it’s inside your heart and if that’s what you want, you should go do it.”
