Our Mission – To maximize, promote, and encourage the development, growth, and expansion of small and minority-owned businesses throughout Hobbs and Lea County.

Hobbs Hispano Chamber of Commerce

Our History

The Hobbs Hispano Chamber of Commerce was founded in December of 2004 by a group of local business community leaders who felt there was a need to form an organization dedicated to the Hispanic community.

Our vision of uniting small, women and minority-owned businesses and professionals through the Hobbs Hispano Chamber of Commerce; as a place to advocate, promote, and network.  Allowing business leaders, owners, and professionals to further enhance their skills and knowledge for operating a successful small business.  To represent the entire community locally and regionally and lend a voice to the Hispanic community.
