The Chamber staff combines 80 years of experience in a collaborative effort to produce quality events and services for the Brazilian-American business community. While each member of the staff has a primary responsibility, they work closely together to make the Chamber what it is today – the premier organization for Brazilian-American relations in New York. The entire staff is either fluent or conversant in Portuguese and English, as well as Spanish.
