As most of you know, the Conquistadores are the good-will ambassadors for the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce. You see us around town each month at ribbon cuttings and groundbreakings as well as charity and special events. We are an extension of the chamber, and we advocate for the business community as well.
We volunteer our time to help members maximize their benefits and get involved with the chamber’s goals and initiatives. Each one of us is not only a Conquistadore, but we are chamber members as well. We believe in the mission of the chamber and know firsthand the impact a chamber membership can have on a business.
It is with this in mind that the Conquistadores are taking yet another step to support both the chamber and the local business community. We are happy to announce the Conquistadores will offer our first New Small & Minority Business Scholarship Program which will provide a free membership to the selected business.
We are committed to helping small businesses to succeed and a membership in the chamber with the all the resources, benefits and networking opportunities can definitely help them grow.
Please contact Vice President of Development Troy Tudor at the chamber for scholarship criteria and an application.
We are proud to see our members grow and be successful. One of our recent proud moments was welcoming five new business leaders to our growing group of Conquistadores.
On behalf of the Conquistadores, Greater Las Cruces Chamber Board of Directors and members a huge welcome and congrats to Jodie Brdecko with American Documents Services, Lafe Gottschling with Bravo Mic Communications, Lupe Rios with Sagecrest Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Laura Smart with Arbonne International and Kate Theisen with Sunspot Solar Energy Systems. We are honored to have their dedication, energy and support to the chamber and our growing business community.
If you would like to get involved with the Conquistadores and be a change agent for our business community contact the chamber office, and let’s take that next step together!
Stacie Allen, Chair of the Council of Conquistadores 2013
