Melissa Rascon attended the 2015 USHCC National Convention held in Houston, TX in September 2015 at the Houston Hilton Americas.
The mission of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is “To foster Hispanic economic development and to create sustainable prosperity for the benefit of American society.”
Evidence abounds: Hispanics are the future of America’s business community. With a start-up rate three times the national average, there are an estimated 4.1 million Hispanic-owned businesses across the country – and growing. These businesses create jobs and contribute in excess of $661 billion to the American economy.
The USHCC works on behalf of our nation’s Hispanic business men and women, that together play a critical role in broadening the prosperity of our country. While the USHCC advocates for business owners who happen to be of Hispanic descent, they are first and foremost American businesses; every tax bill they pay, every job they create, every product they manufacture and every service they provide goes to benefit the American economy.
