CEN-TEX HISPANIC CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
The Cen-Tex Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (CTHCC), established in 1975, strives to unite the Latinx American community in Central Texas, developing partnerships that create stronger community relationships, networking opportunities and economic growth for its members. Governed by a board of directors, the CTHCC is composed of Latinx American community leaders and other professionals in the community who recognize increasing cultural diversity. Chamber members and volunteers work with the community to successfully promote the business, economic, educational, and social development of the Latinx American community in Waco and Central Texas.
