Chairman, Maurice Calderón established the Inland Empire Hispanic Leadership Council in 2007. Together with a collection of Hispanic civic leaders from San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, he visualized a presence of a uniform Hispanic voice that would guide policies within the business, education, health and public policy areas to champion for the citizens of the Hispanic community. Today, the Council has created a strong network of informed Hispanic civic leaders who serve on a variety of policy making boards. Regular meetings are held in an open forum to continue to educate and support civic leaders holding or seeking leadership roles within the Hispanic community.
Mr. Calderón worked in the banking industry and retired as vice-president of Arrowhead Credit Union in 2008. His vision and foresight has earned him acolytes from all areas of civic engagement. A street in Banning, California, name “Calderón Way” named in his honor, serves as a symbol of the courageous leadership of Maurice Calderón.
