One of the exciting benefits of uniting the Oxnard and Camarillo chambers is opening up more committee opportunities for members. For many years, the Camarillo Chamber has had a Latinos in Business Committee, and members from the Oxnard Chamber are invited to participate.
The chair of the committee is Yaretd Alcantara of Glamour Studio and the vice chair is Heaven Luna of Luna Beauty & Wellness. The committee meets the first Wednesday of every month at 9:00 am. For now, you may visit the Camarillo Chamber's website to view the event calendar and register for upcoming meetings.

The purpose of our committee is to provide education, mentorship, and networking in order to prompt the growth of business and foster entrepreneurship.
