A two-day symposium focusing on the future of Arizona’s economy, and specifically how the Latino community will impact that future, is scheduled for May 4-5 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

The Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is hosting “Transforming Arizona’s Economy,” with workshops, seminars, and presentations focusing on “the historic and growing impact of Latino-owned businesses and consumers statewide and across the nation.”

The event, presented by University of Phoenix, will including a community town hall, screening of the HBO production “The Latino List,” and the 54th annual black and white ball and business awards – on top of the release of the Chamber’s 16th-annual “Datos: Focus on the Hispanic Market.”

Designated as an official Arizona Centennial event, the symposium will highlight the historical legacy of Arizona’s Latino community.
