Pleasanton business delegation back from CubaThis group of representatives of the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce is back from Cuba, part of a "people-to-people" cultural experience that allowed direct interaction with Cuban citizens.
Chamber trip provided 'people-to-people' interaction
Roy Cook, senior corporate recruiter for Robert Half International, who was on the trip, said the group spent eight days in Cuba on a guided tour of historic sites as a well as meeting with people in the community.
The trip was taken in partnership with Chamber Explorations that has a specific license from the U.S. Treasury Department's office of Foreign Assets Control, which authorizes Americans to visit Cuba. Everyone on the trip paid their own way for the visit, Cook said.
