California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce


Los Angeles Latino Chamber of Commerce

The LALCC has been instrumental in helping the small business community succeed in growing their businesses, secure capital, loan packaging, procurement opportunities and using technology to become more efficient and increase their profits. Since 2009, we have conducted 36 workshops and assisted over 700 small business owners annually through our training programs. The chamber has assisted hundreds of business owners and provided hundreds of hours of one-on-one business consultations.

The mission of the LALCC is to assist, organize and unify Latino business owners to: (1) generate increased levels of business between members; (2) generate increased levels of business from outside the Latino community; (3) provide valuable and permanent member services for the improvement and success of their businesses; (4) advocate for small- and medium-sized businesses on a regional, statewide, and national basis; and (5) provide overall leadership on relevant business issues, as well as community economic development issues.

A key focus of the LALCC is to provide chamber members with meaningful and result-oriented access to procurement opportunities. In addition to the traditional procurement matchmaking events, we have developed a unique and innovative “committee” approach in securing large contracts. Our various committees are comprised of highly-qualified and certified business owners who have similar interests and expertise in specific issue areas. Chamber staff provide guidance, direction and strategic plans on how to best maximize and utilize their meetings with key decision makers from various organizations of the public and private sectors.

The LALCC is also actively engaged in small business policy issues on a local, state and national level. The LALCC advocates for the small business community and have had various meetings in Washington, D.C. with key elected officials, regulators and stakeholders.

Since joining the CHCC we have been very active in working with the CHCC. Theresa Martinez, CEO of the LALCC has taken part in various CHCC events including: CHCC Southern Region Meeting in June 2014, CHCC Convention in August 2014, participated in CHCC elections in October 2014, part of the CHCC Legislative Affairs Committee, part of the CHCC Procurement Committee, and hosted the Southern Region Meeting in February 2015. In addition we frequently assist the CHCC in publicizing events via our email database, social media, and website. The LALCC also worked with the CHCC by participating in the Covered California Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) outreach efforts.

Laid-off Workers Return to Their Fields


August 27, 2014
By Paul Davidson,



A growing number of displaced workers are getting jobs in the industries they left a hallmark of a strengthening recovery.
Of the roughly 4 million non-farm workers laid off from jobs they held at least three years from 2011 to 2013, 62% were working again by January 2014, says a survey of displaced workers by the Bureau of Labor Statistics released Tuesday.



Business owners know that the ability to offer employees quality health insurance is a competitive advantage in the labor market. Health insurance through Covered California’s SHOP gives you financial control of your business while allowing your employees to choose from a range of quality.
