CLA Welcome Message

We welcome you to our site!

The “Comerciantes Latinos Asociados” (CLA) is an influential association that has an active representation through our San Diego County, California, USA. Since its inception in 1999, our mission has been to “Promote economic development and participate positively within our communities”.

The CLA is a relationship based organization. Our monthly bilingual meetings help promote in educating our Latino business owners in topics relevant to their day- to- day business operations and staying current with city government and city operations. It is important for Latino business owners to understand what may affect their business as their local city leaders make decisions that may have an impact on their business operation.

We as an organization are committed to the promotion of Hispanic owned businesses and their clients. We also encourage our members to utilize products and services from other members within our organization, this is why networking is key within our group. It is important to state that the proceeds raised from our monthly meetings and fundraising events all go to a cause that is very important our organization… Education! Proceeds are given in forms of scholarships to a selected group of high school students to further their University studies.

Learn more about what we do by reading through our web site or simply calling our Regional Director Bill de la Fuente.

Thank you for visiting us today, we hope to see you at our next meeting!
