Who We Are:
AHCC is a member-focused business organization and we are proud to be one of the largest Hispanic chambers in the country. Our members are the core of everything we do and you support our organization by collaborating with us in a variety of ways. We constantly strive to anticipate and meet the needs of our members in order to support your businesses in a dynamic way. These efforts have driven us to develop AHCC into an organization that is more than a chamber – we are a force in the community, driving business and economic growth in unique and unparalleled ways. All of these efforts combine to improve the economy of both Albuquerque and New Mexico.
In addition, AHCC is more than a chamber as one of the only Hispanic chambers of commerce in the U.S. with a Convention and Tourism Department. Tourism and travel is one of the most critical economic development drivers for Albuquerque and is New Mexico’s number two private sector industry. With this in mind, AHCC formed the Convention and Tourism Department in 1976 and has taken a very strong role in promoting tourism in Albuquerque in order to meet its mission of economic development for local businesses.
AHCC strongly believes that supporting our youth is critical to maintaining Albuquerque’s growth. In our efforts to be more than a chamber, we offer scholarships to deserving students every year! We consider this to be one of our most important contributions to the local business community, as we assist in the development of new generations of business owners and members.
AHCC is dedicated to connecting with current and future members in all types of demographics. We are here to serve the entire business community!
Our areas of focus works interactively with the others to help us create a force for the community. We strive every day to support our members to create a cycle of economic improvement that builds on itself, resulting in a major impact on local business. Growing our membership enhances our program of work on every level. Workforce training increases the number of skilled workers available to the business community. Convention and Tourism brings tourists here, which supports local business. Education and scholarships support our youth, who are the leaders of tomorrow’s New Mexico. The list goes on and on…AHCC is truly more than a chamber and we help our members and our community in an impressive variety of ways.
