The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City was founded in 1977 by 25 Hispanic business leaders who envisioned the need for an organization that would represent their interests before the public and private sectors. The organization aimed at developing a business network that would provide the Hispanic business community with cohesion and strength while promoting economic growth and development of its member businesses and the community they serve. Since its inception, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has worked towards the development of its members and in promoting business relationships between Hispanic businesses and non-Hispanic businesses in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
In recent years, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has created programming for our member businesses, that has been an integral part of building their capacity and developing certain business skills. The programming ranges from business planning, advertising, sales and marketing, procurement and certification processes. We are constantly seeking new avenues to provide timely informational training for our membership to compete more fully and suceed in today's business environment.
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. A President, manage the organization with the support of a Membership Services Director, an Office Manager, a Sales Director, a Business Development Director, and an Administrative Assistant. The Board of Directors consists of 24 members. The members of the Board of Directors, although volunteers, are active in the operation, management, and promotion of the organization.
