As we celebrate the Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s (WHCC) 25th anniversary, I am excited to announce our renewed commitment to promoting the advancement and economic development of Hispanic businesses and professionals in our county.
The WHCC was founded in 1988 by a committed group of business professionals and individuals in response to the pressing need to create an organization that would respond to the various needs of the growing Hispanic business community. The Chamber has evolved into a vehicle that serves as our voice before government entities. It provides businesses and professionals with focused networking events, educational forums, and access to Corporate and Government agencies which support Hispanic business development and stimulate growth. Our defined goals are to increase business opportunities for our membership and to foster economic growth and job creation.
We believe that with the dramatic growth of the Hispanic population in our region, and the establishment of a large number of businesses, new challenges have arisen and the need for a stronger business organization that will be able to address these new challenges. As a result of these changes, the WHCC has established a strategic alliance with the Westchester County Association. This mutually beneficial partnership allows us to utilize effective marketing techniques, aggressively enlist the support of our vast regional business community through member recruitment, and design programs that deliver vital services to our members and community at large.
The WHCC membership consists of Hispanic businesses, professionals, as well as private and public institutions interested in doing business with the growing Hispanic market. We are committed to facilitating business relationships between our members and the business community at large. On behalf of the Board of Directors, and the membership of WHCC, I encourage you to join us and support this most important endeavor.
Very truly yours,
Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
