Membership

The objective of the Hispanic Chamber is to promote and support Hispanic small businesses through programs, services, and legislative advocacy.

Over the past twelve months, the Hispanic Chamber successfully launched the Centene Technology Center, equipped with 30 computers provided by a grant from AT&T, and is delivering programs, seminars, and other appropriate education and training sessions that help Hispanic entrepreneurs compete and thrive in the new economy. The individual rooms at the Technology Center, including a conference room, visiting office, a seminar room and a small computer lab are all available to members free of charge during business hours.

The Hispanic Chamber is also working with city, county, and state government to craft laws and policies that allow Hispanic businesses a fair chance to start and thrive. We have started the Hispanic Speakers Series, highlighting Hispanic individuals that are having a positive impact on the region, and we are working with our partner organizations to provide free legal and financial advice monthly at the Technology Center.

These are just a few examples of how the Hispanic Chamber works for its members. Come join us! And if you are a new, Hispanic-owned business that started in the last three years, you can join the Chamber free for one year.

For more information, please contact the Hispanic Chamber’s office, at 314-664-4432, or by email at staff@hccstl.com.
