Catherine J.K. Sandoval, a member of the California Public Utilities Commission, is the keynote speaker for this year's Latina Business Conference on Wednesday, hosted by the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. It also will feature a business-to-business trade show.
Sandoval was the CPUC's first Hispanic commissioner, appointed in 2011 by Gov. Jerry Brown. She earned a juris doctor from Stanford Law School and a master of letters in political science from Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar -- the first Hispanic woman to earn that honor.
The conference starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Hilton Stockton, 2323 Grand Canal Blvd.
Tickets are $75 per person. Information: Hispanic chamber, (209) 943-6117 or on the chamber's website.
