What Do Our Members Say About HCCL?


Throughout the year the Hispanic Chamber presents me with information on seminars and workshops on issues relating to small business development, current and upcoming legislative issues affecting business and other related information at little or no cost. This is of great importance to my business for it keeps me abreast of what is important to constituents in my immediate community.

It is an honor to be a sponsor of the 2017 USHCC Chamber of the Year, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana. This organization hosts empowering events such as the Women’s Business Symposium and attracts distinguished guest speakers throughout the year.

The HCCL’s division of Hispanic Young Professionals of Louisiana (HYPLA) nurtures the careers of Louisiana’s future leaders through dynamic development, networking and community service.

The HCCL offers career counseling, job placement, educational seminars and the only web-based bilingual workforce training program in the state through its Bilingual Workforce Development and Training Center. These initiatives fill a void in Louisiana and were much needed.

The leadership and administrative staff is fantastic to work with, and it is obvious they are passionate about their work, as each event is executed in a professional, thoughtful and organized way. The HCCL works hard for each and every sponsorship they receive, whether for a specific event or just a year-round sponsorship.

Through HCCL sponsorship our company has grown its business, increased brand visibility and built long-lasting relationships.
