Headquartered in Washington, DC the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) is the largest Hispanic business organization in the United States.

Founded in 1979, the USHCC actively promotes the economic growth and development of entrepreneurs and represents the interests of nearly 3.2 million Hispanic owned businesses nationwide that contribute in excess of $468 billion to the American economy. It also serves as the umbrella organization for more than 200 local chambers and business associations throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Annual National Convention Each year the USHCC hosts its National Convention and Business Expo featuring hundreds of exhibitors from the United States and abroad. The convention is the country’s largest networking venue for Hispanic businesses and Fortune 1000 corporations interested in the Hispanic market. Over four-days, the national convention affords Hispanic vendors and corporate buyers the opportunity to establish partnerships where business opportunities can flourish. In addition, the convention offers various sessions and discussions on business development, chamber training, innovative business trends and solutions, as well as a focus on current issues that impact the Hispanic entrepreneur.

Annual Legislative Summit Each year during the session of the United States Congress, the USHCC hosts its annual Legislative Summit. The summit provides chamber members, Hispanic business leaders, and corporate executives the opportunity to discuss legislative policy issues that impact the small business community. Hispanic chamber executives also utilize this opportunity to meet with their Congressional representatives. In addition, every two years, the USHCC issues its Legislative Policy and Priorities to the White House and Congress.
