Description

The vision of the Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is to build bridges between
new Americans and the Commonwealth of Virginia. The VAHCC serves to connect
the outstanding potential of the Latino workforce to mainstream American commerce.
The Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was founded in May 2000 as the first
statewide organization to empower Hispanics in the Virginia business community by
building economic, social, and cultural bridges between Virginia and its growing
Hispanic community. Since its commencement, the VAHCC has worked to foster an
environment that is conducive to business growth and benefits people with business
acumen, Hispanic or otherwise, through business and networking activities.
Our goals include:
• Growth and success of the VAHCC membership and Virginia Hispanic business
• To bridge the Hispanic and Commonwealth communities

The VAHCC works with Hispanic Virginians and all those who wish to better the
community, partner with Hispanic business, and promote diversity. These include:
Virginia businesses and corporations; local, state, federal, and international entities;
non-profit organizations, and individuals. Ultimately, our organization seeks to achieve
significant visibility that will lead to becoming the organization of choice.
