The Latin American Chamber of Commerce started in Charlotte in 1995 as “Las Americas Business Council “ within the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce thanks to a group of determined and forward- thinking Latino professionals and entrepreneurs. The LACCC was chartered by the State of North Carolina as a separate chamber in 2001 and began connecting and empowering the Latino and non-Latino business community in Charlotte. The LACCC established permanent offices at the BIZHUB Entrepreneurial Center at the CPCC central campus in 2006 with 13 board members. There are now over 20 board members representing corporations, entrepreneurs and professionals from the Charlotte region.
The LACCC Foundation was established in 2006 to provide resources and scholarships. A formal executive director was appointed in November 2010 to create an effective platform of programs and services that would help grow and support the Latino business community in the region after the economic downturn . The LACCC is currently 400 members strong. In addition, the LACCC is a member of the USHCC (United State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce). In April 2011, the LACCC entered into a formal strategic alliance with the newly branded Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Georgia (LACCG).
