RHCC Vision

people

A vision for a local organization to represent the interests for the Hispanic business community before the public and private sectors was a mere thought. Until a group of community leaders in 2000, through hard work, created the Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce later being established that same year. During the census of 2000 a trend illustrated 36 percent of the population in Long Beach, California where the Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was founded.

Considering this trend, it was evident that not only was Long Beach’s population vastly Hispanic, but that neighboring cities should well include such figures. While naming the organization, “Regional” was selected to emphasize the need to represent the Hispanic business community of neighboring cities.

The Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Mission is to Advocate, Promote and Facilitate the Success of Businesses in Southern California and its Trade Areas.

The relatively young chamber has come a long way since it was established. In the direction of Sandy Cajas and Carlos Galvan Jr., the Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has entered into a new chapter in their existence, expanding business across international borders to Mexico. Some projects in the near future are the Punta Colonet, El Sauzal, and Ensenada Ports; the Tecate Railway, the Ensenada International Airport, and the Tijuana Intermodal Yard.
