"Nashville is at a crucial juncture in its history. We are not yet a truly diverse city, but we are about to become one, and the real question is, Can we do it right?"

Looking for the Hispanic chamber? There are TWO.

Two active Hispanic chambers of commerce attract their respective followings in Middle Tennessee

Information current as of November 2007

The most basic thing to know about "the Hispanic chamber" is that there is often more than one.

As of November 2007, there are two active Hispanic chambers of commerce in Middle Tennessee: the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Two other chambers are now defunct. The Franklin Area Hispanic Chamber was disbanded earlier this year by its founder Eva Melo, who continues to organize events in town (like this holiday party, also December 4 but not at the same time as the Nashville chamber luncheon). The incorporation of the Middle Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce lasted only a year - from June 15, 2006 to its administrative dissolution by the State of Tennessee on August 27, 2007.

how many Hispanic chambers are there in Nashville?
