On May 24th, Slavic American Chamber of Commerce hosted a reception to celebrate Slavic Heritage Day. Many business, community and elected leaders, as well as representatives of foreign diplomatic missions were in attendance to support this holiday. On the same day, Chamber’s leadership also met with California Board of Equalization Member Sen. George Runner and Assemblymember Jim Cooper. Both elected officials recognized great leadership and contribution of Slavic American Chamber in California’s economy. Previously, California State Legislature passed a concurrent resolution to recognize May 24th as the time when rich history of Slavic Americans is celebrated and their contributions to this nation are honored.
