Hemispheric Congress of Latin Chambers of Commerce and Industry June 4-7, 2018 Miami, Florida

CAMACOL has been a pioneer in the international business sector. For over 39 years CAMACOL has been active in this area through its Hemispheric Congress of Latin Chambers of Commerce and Industry, a program which is unique in that it has an established infrastructure comprised of the presidents of the national chambers of commerce throughout the Latin America and Caribbean region, as well as Spain.

This infrastructure facilities business linkages for Florida companies in the export sector, and supports new to export business as well.

No other organization in the State of Florida has this established infrastructure.

The Congress has a hands-on approach to trade development and advocacy and works in tandem with the Florida Trade program sponsored by the State of Florida by assisting small and minority companies to establish business linkages between Miami, Florida and the global marketplace.

The Congress has a year long program of activities which culminates in the 4-day event, where businesses can meet over 30 countries in 4 days. As such, the Hemispheric Congress has enabled the development of linkages which have translated into the creation of jobs and revenue for our community and State. The dates for the 38th Hemispheric Congress are from June 5-8, 2017 at the Doubletree by Hilton in Miami, Florida.

The Congress program includes interactive panels, networking events, luncheons and a trade show expo. Speakers at the Congress have included 2 former U.S. Presidents, former Florida Governors, senior cabinet members, the Prime Minister of Spain, and heads of government from Latin America. As such, the Hemispheric Congress has enabled the development of linkages which have translated into the creation of jobs and revenue.

You can find several reasons to pursuit a certification on google but I will give only 2 important reasons according with the Canadian job market for professionals and migrants.  As you well know, one of the mayor filters to get a job in Canada is that you have Canadian Experience, the second one is the Years of Experience in your filed, how long time of experience do you have in…

Being newcomer or Canadian, you should demonstrate not only experience but knowledge and with the certification in the field, the recruiters are feel comfortable that you have it.  You will get the interview faster than another person not showing certifications, additional of this, please do not forget explaining in detail all your duties where you apply the certification.  Also, the certification will support that you are an expert and they will have confident on your skills that you write down into your resume.

What is a certification?

Professional certification, trade certification, or professional designation, often called simply certification or qualification, is a designation earned by a person to assure qualification to perform a job or task. Not all certifications that use post-nominal letters are an acknowledgement of educational achievement, or an agency appointed to safeguard the public interest.[1]
