ABOUT

ABOUT

The Wichita Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Inc., (WHCC) is a volunteer membership-driven organization comprised of individuals, small business owners, corporate representatives, and associates representing various non-profit organizations.

 

In March 2002, Hispanic business leaders gathered and created the Wichita Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (WHCC). These Hispanic business leaders envisioned the need for an organization to represent their interests and meet the needs of the Hispanic business community. The WHCC was incorporated later that year, creating a coherent and strong organization within the Wichita Hispanic business community. WHCC was incorporated with the Kansas Secretary of State’s office in April 2002 and was established in June 2002 as Wichita's first minority Chamber of Commerce.
