Albert Clark has been elected as the new board chairman of the San Diego Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the chamber announced in a release.
"A few years ago I joined the chamber, and as a young Hispanic professional, I was looking for an organization that would not only support me and assist me in growing my business but also provide me with the tools necessary to be a better Hispanic professional," Clark said in a statement. "The chamber gave me what I needed and more."
Clark said the chamber's new vision was summed up as "unity is the pathway to success."

He said the chamber's membership was "extremely diverse" and that its networking mixers have been showing rapid growth.
The chamber is ready to launch a series of workshops in 2012, and invites area businesspeople to join the chamber.
"We have made it accessible to your pocket with these hard economic times by lowering our individual membership to $99," Clark said. "Muchas gracis y saludos."
The chamber is holding a special mixer at the House of Blues on April 19.
