Las Cruces Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
The Las Cruces Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was initiated in 1991 as the Hispano Chamber of Doña Ana County, and in 1992 incorporated as the Hispano Chamber of Commerce de Las Cruces. In 2013, the name was changed to what we know today as the Las Cruces Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The original founders consisted of a group of business persons who shared a strong common belief and were interested in developing a support organization for small and Hispanic-owned businesses. The Chamber started with only 10 paid members, a number that has since grown to more than 300 paid members in Las Cruces, Alamogordo, southern Doña Ana County, El Paso, Texas, and Albuquerque. The diverse membership includes businesses, non-profit organizations, individuals, and students.
The Board of Directors, comprised of prominent business and civic leaders in our community, governs the chamber and is dedicated to furthering our mission. In recent years, the organization’s focus has since switched gears to the areas of foreign investment facilitation, small business advocacy and support, government affairs, marketing assistance, small-business incubation and an even stronger presence in the local education system.
The Las Cruces Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is proud to serve the Las Cruces and Doña Ana community for over twenty years, and will continue to be an anchor in our area for growth and development.
Las Cruces Green Chamber of Commerce
The idea of the Las Cruces Green Chamber of Commerce started when Don Kurtz and Gary Camuñez began looking for business leaders and professionals who were interested in implementing the Triple Bottom Line: success by community investment, success by sustainability, and success by profit (otherwise referred to as People, Planet, and Profit). A diverse group convened; one that didn’t seem to have a common thread. However, these professionals found they all had the same common goal: to provide a better environment for local businesses and a better environment for the planet and its inhabitants.
To promote socially and environmentally responsible businesses and to build a vibrant and successful local economy based on the Triple Bottom Line.
Our members believe in the power of the Triple Bottom Line – that investing in people; protecting our air, land and water; and promoting profit through sustainable business practices will build a thriving community for today and for generations to come.
