It is a recognized Hispanic business resource and leader in the economic and business development of Kern County.

History

In 1985, a small group of dedicated Hispanic business leaders recognized both, the enormous potential of the Hispanic business community in Kern County, and the need for an organization to represent its interests in the public and private sector.

Since its incorporation 27 years ago, the Kern County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has become the fastest growing civic organization in the Kern County area. With over 400 members, the Chamber represents over 410,000 Hispanics, and is comprised of a cross-section of professionals and business people, who in turn represent corporations as well as large and small businesses.

Our goal is to promote Hispanic and minority-owned businesses, and those that cater to, or employ Hispanics by being active and visible in the community and by raising the level of awareness of our member's needs in the business community.

We are affiliated with the California and United States Hispanic Chambers of Commerce.
