Boston Private Bank & Trust Company hosts
“Business Morning”
By Boston Private Bank & Trust Company
Boston Private Bank & Trust Company hosted the Hispanic-American Chamber of
Commerce for a “Business Morning” breakfast on June 19th, with over seventy
members and friends of the Chamber in attendance.
The featured speaker was Richard Glovsky, a Partner at Prince, Lobel, Glovsky
and Tye, specializing in employment law. His presentation focused on two timely
issues related to human resources: first, the risks to businesses associated with
blogging and instant messaging by employees, and second, the risks associated
with language, often included in company handbooks and polices, that has been
interpreted by courts as creating a contractual obligation with employees, effectively
limiting a company’s ability to terminate an employee. Mr. Glovsky presented strategies to mitigate these risks with appropriate company policies. Pilar Pueyo, SVP and
Richard D. Glosky, Partner at Prince Lobel,
Glovsky & Tye.
Director of Human Resources for Boston Private Bank, commented “It is important that
business owners and managers be aware of these risks and craft polices to protect their businesses in the long run.

September 2007 is Life Insurance Awareness Month (LIAM), an industry-wide campaign to educate the public
about the importance of life insurance. The Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education (LIFE) is sponsoring the campaign with millions of dollars in advertising and public relation support. New York Life is proud once
again to take part in this important
initiative. Last year's LIAM was the
first of its kind and was an unequivocal success, as it contributed to it
being one of the best September's in
our company's history. We hope to
have this year surpass this precedent, benefiting the public, the
Company, and our General Offices
and agents nationwide.

By Ana Portillo
Ana Portillo is a long-time contributor and activist within the Greater Boston Hispanic
community, and has participated in previous Chamber work. She has recently been
invited to participate actively in the HACC.
Two years ago we reawakened the tremendous potential that exists in the Hispanic
American Chamber of Commerce (HACC) idea. At that time, we focused on getting
activities and events going. We did not invest much energy on the VISION of what
we eventually will become. Now it is time to do that! During the coming months we
want to work with all of you who care about our community to articulate what the
HACC should become in order to create maximum value for its members.
What should be the HACC’s role in the Greater Boston community?
Our ambition is to create – together – a framework that will guide the Hispanic business community to grow in size and prominence, to forge strong links within our
community, and at the same time to work effectively with the Boston community at
large. As we see it now, the HACC can become the key to develop, expand and
enrich the Hispanic business community.
What are some of the important investments we should make as we
create our framework and design instruments for growth? As we have worked
on this, we came up with what we consider to be the three pillars “P’s” of HACC
organization-building: Presence, Partnerships and Possibilities.
- We should invest energy to strengthen our PRESENCE in the
Hispanic community and the greater Boston business community
People should know what the HACC is and why it is important. We will establish
presence through publicity, by creating materials such as new brochures and the
already existent Vision Newsletter, and by sponsoring activities and events that
attract attention and recruit new people. At a deeper level, our presence will grow
as we bring new members into our community and strengthen relationships with
existing members. As our presence grows, our capacity to be a strategic player in
the larger business community will also grow – and that, in turn, will attract more
members and resources.
- We should invest energy to create more and better PARTNERSHIPS
with other organizations
We want to work in partnership both with those already involved in the Hispanic community and with others that share our business and cultural priorities. In the past,
we have jointly hosted events with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. We
can do that again. Many business, professional and cultural associations want to
learn about and build bridges to the Hispanic community. The HACC can help them
do that while gaining reciprocal benefits for our members and our community.
- We should invest energy to generate new POSSIBILITIES for meeting the needs and wants of our members
We have a variety of members now and we will be actively recruiting a variety of
types of members in the future. These include individual and organizational members, Hispanic owned and general businesses, small or one-person professional

organizations and large multinational corporations, and so on.
Because our members see “Hispanic business” from a variety
of places and perspectives, it is vital to explore carefully and
imaginatively what our members can gain from the HACC.
What are the possibilities to provide value to our members? Some possibilities will flow from the emerging framework; for example, creating more HACC partnership relationships will offer members, in turn, the ability to extend their own
business networks. We intend to establish community relationships as an effective tool for members to become an active
part of the Greater Boston business community. As we
increase our presence in the larger community, more people
and organizations will read our literature and attend our
events. This, in turn, will provide new opportunities to place
members’ business information or advertisements before the
public. Other kinds of possibilities are abundant, when we
consider the HACC’s potential for gathering and providing
information, designing and facilitating workshops of various
types, influencing public policy decisions that impact Hispanic
businesses, etc.
* * * *
Where can the HACC get the direction, energy and
support for these new initiatives? First, we are providing
organizational focus by making this a priority of the Chairman
and by establishing my volunteer role as Director of
Membership Development and Services. Ariel Schmidt and
I will work closely with Executive Director Nader Acevedo to
create programs and plans that fit the interests and needs of
our members.
Second, we are mobilizing our membership to join us
in this effort. You, our members, will determine our ultimate
success by the energy and support you provide to our planning
and development work. You can provide that energy and support in several ways.
You can help us learn what we should be doing – which possibilities for member service should receive our highest
priority? I – and others - will be calling you to learn about your
needs and about how you perceive the HACC’s future. Why
did you become a member of the HACC? If you are not
now a member, what can induce you to become one? We
will convene focus groups to explore specific areas and ideas.
At some point, we will create and send out a membership survey. Your thoughtful responses to all these inquiries will be critically important to our success.
You can join us as we work on this important task of HACC
institution-building. Volunteer to work on information gathering,
recruitment and other projects. As you know, we are a non
Agosto 2007
profit organization and our way to generate funds is through
membership fees, contributions and donations. Right now we
have just one full time paid staff member. Your volunteer work
is an important supporting resource – and it can pay back in
contacts, networking and the satisfaction of teamwork as well!
Finally, sign up for and participate in HACC events, and use
the services that will be offered to members. For instance,
these ideas have been circulating among board members, volunteers and staff who have been thinking about the HACC’s
evolving framework of services:
1. Networking meetings
2. Feature workshops; for example, a Negotiation
Workshop offered by professionals from Harvard
3. Directory of Hispanic businesses and specialized
4. List of Job Postings
5. Professional development – making the HACC an
instrument of your growth and development through
a variety of workshops or online training
6. Supporting services to members; e.g., website construction, internet services, etc.
When significant possibilities for member services emerge, we
intend to create a brochure that explains who we are and how
we can help your business. Look for it! In other words,
besides joining the process, watch for the fruits of this whole
effort and become part of our success!
