Resource Groups

The Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is committed to keeping our member businesses competitive. To help meet that goal, we offer the following professional development opportunities:

  • In partnership with the Arizona Technology Council, our members can attend one of the ATC’s Lunch & Learns for free as part of our Technology Series Programming. The Lunch & Learn events are held on a quarterly basis and offer training and information on technology in the workplace and how these new advances can build your company.
  • Business Boot Camp Series, which encompasses everything from business start-up 101 courses, to financial wellness, legal, growth strategies training.
  • Our Latina Business Enterprises Group hosts three events annually, featuring an array of speakers offering expertise on a wide range of topics.


The Latina Business Enterprise Group, whose mission is aligned with the vision of the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, focuses on the interests of Latina/women-owned businesses and their professional career advancement.

According to the U.S. Census, Latina-owned companies were the fastest growing segment of businesses in the country, growing at a rate three to four times that of the general market. In 2015, there were more than 123,000 Latina-owned firms in the state, making up a majority of all Hispanic-owned companies in Arizona.
