Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Montgomery County
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Montgomery County (HCCMC) was founded in November 1998 to serve the needs of the Hispanic business community in Montgomery County. HCCMC advocates for small businesses, provides assistance through education, facilitates partnerships, seeks ways to ease regulatory, financial and cultural barriers to business growth, and makes evident the contribution of Hispanic owned businesses to the well-being of the County. HCCMC develops and supports Hispanic youth programs and scholarship drives to ensure that a new generation of professionals, artists, and entrepreneurs can continue a legacy of positive contributions to our society.

African American Chamber of Commerce of Montgomery County
The African American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) of Montgomery County is a non-profit organization founded in 1996 to support and unify African American businesses in Montgomery County. The founders of AACC recognized the need for an organization specifically focused on increasing the number and strength of African American businesses. While economic development has continued to proliferate throughout most segments of the County, the African American business community has not progressed at the same rate. AACC’s goals include enhancing the positive presence and visibility of African American businesses, conducting regular educational seminars, and serving as an information clearinghouse. AACC promotes networking, mentoring and lobbying for the benefits of African American businesses.
