USHCC Announces Visa as 2013 Legislative Summit Corporate Chair

WASHINGTON,, Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The United States Hispanic
Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) today announced Visa Inc. as the Corporate Chair
of its upcoming 23rd Annual Legislative Summit, slated for March 18-20, 2013,
at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC. The annual event – a forum to address
legislative and policy issues important to the growth and expansion of
America's small business community – will draw upon Visa's exemplary
commitment to helping small and minority-owned firms grow.

"Over the past several years, Visa has been one of the USHCC's strongest
corporate partners," said Javier Palomarez, USHCC President & CEO. "By
providing a safe payments network for Hispanic-owned businesses, as well as
savings opportunities that allow entrepreneurs to grow and create jobs, Visa's
successful small business initiatives will translate into thoughtful, relevant
advocacy at the Legislative Summit."

Since the start of a strategic alliance with the USHCC, Visa has provided
local Hispanic chambers and their members with effective tools for growth.
Businesses within the USHCC network are now able to receive guaranteed
payments and greater risk management protection, while also providing more
efficient point-of-sale experiences for their customers, through the use of
Visa's innovative small business products.

"As we bring together the people and policy experts that affect not only the
small business community, but help command the strength and prowess of the
American work force, the USHCC recognizes Visa for sharing the resources and
knowledge to make meaningful contributions within the Hispanic business
community," said USHCC Chairman Marc Rodriguez. "We are delighted to have Visa
on board as the 2013 Legislative Summit Corporate Chair."

The USHCC Annual Legislative Summit is attended each year by hundreds of
chamber executives, Hispanic business owners, Fortune 500 corporate
representatives and leaders in federal and state government, as well as
elected officials and members of the Administration. The Summit features
several meal events, receptions, workshops and Congressional meetings focused
on pertinent issues facing American small businesses.
