Currently, the Hispano Chamber is a community of approximately 1,000 business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals committed to scaling small businesses and empowering individuals through economic growth and wealth creation. The Hispano Chamber is the largest Hispanic chamber in the country, and the largest chamber of commerce in New Mexico.
