(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 10, 2008 ) Sacramento, CA -- Former Treasurer of the United States and current California Secretary of the State and Consumer Services Agency, Rosario Marin, will address the area’s small businesses at the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Procurement & Job Fair on August 19th at 12:30pm at the Radisson Hotel.

With over 200,000 state workers soon facing minimum-wage checks, The Procurement & Job Fair will be a vital chance for many people now looking for new careers and expanded business opportunities.

“We are honored and excited to have Secretary Marin address the audience at this year’s Procurement & Job Fair. As a strong and faithful advocate for the Hispanic business community in California she will offer insight on ways we can work together in these challenging economic times,” said Diana Borroel, SHCC President. “Following her address, attendees can network with top companies offering procurement and career opportunities all over the region.”

The Procurement and Job Fair’s purpose is two-fold. Small businesses will use the event as an avenue for contracting opportunities with area companies such as SMUD, Walmart, City of Sacramento, Department of General Service, U.S. Small Business Administration, The Federal Technology Center and many others. Bilingual employees seeking jobs with local and national corporations will also visit the fair for valuable on-site interview opportunities.

“I’m honored and excited to visit with all the wonderful business men and women at the SHCC fair,” said Rosario Marin. “The Governor gave me a goal of ensuring that at least 25 percent of all state contracts go to small businesses and I intend to exceed it year after year by encouraging these talented business people to get registered and take advantage of these fabulous networking opportunities.”
