The Morris County Hispanic American-Chamber of Commerce (MCHACC) is recognized with the prestigious Best Large Chamber of the Year accolade at the 2021 United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) National Conference Sept. 26-28, 2021, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The USHCC national conference theme this year was “Your Business Future Begins with USHCC – America’s Economic Prosperity Depends on More Equity for Latino Business.”

As a national organization, it represents 260 Hispanic Chambers throughout the nation. Each year, MCHACC has attended the event representing the interests of its members with a goal to bring back more business and boost our local economy.

“For over 32 years, we have served the Morris County Hispanic business community. We are proud and honored to receive this esteemed honor on behalf of our members, especially during a time when many businesses and families have been severely economically impacted by the pandemic,” said MCHACC Founder & President Emeritus, Esperanza Porras-Field.

“Our Chamber’s innovative programs, community service, and cultural awareness expansion has earned us the top national award among our peers.”

Receiving the award for MCHACC was Chairman of the Board Ralph Tejeda, along with other board of director leaders.

Mr. Tejeda stated: “We diligently support the interests of our members. Our Board sets the guiding vision driven by our members’ needs. I am proud to be surrounded by savvy business owners who embody the spirit of servant leadership.

“The MCHACC works together on the municipal, state, national, and international level to ensure our Hispanic-American community continues to thrive. Congratulations to Alice Rodriguez, chair, USHCC board of directors and head of community impact, managing director, JP Morgan Chase & Co.; and to Ramiro Cavazos, USHCC president/CEO.”

The 2021 national Best Large Chamber of the Year recognition is yet another step towards Hispanics, America’s largest minority group, advocating for equity and a seat at decision-making tables in US Congress, Administration, and America’s largest corporations.

MCHACC continues to expand access to capital, procurement opportunities, and education to unleash the collective power of our $2.6 trillion Latino GDP.

“As a Chamber leader, I’m excited for our members to create generational wealth in our Latino community. The key to growth is entrepreneurship. Unidos (together) we will fuel the economic recovery of our country,” said Christina Martínez, MCHACC director, membership & marketing and former board chairwoman.

For over 32 years, the MCHACC is proud to promote the success of and advocate for Hispanic-owned businesses and community leaders.
