The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (PMAHCC) is the principal regional advocate for the Hispanic business community’s civic and economic interests. It is our mission to develop, promote and advocate on behalf of Hispanic businesses & professionals in the Pittsburgh region while encouraging the advancement and economic growth of Pittsburgh’s Hispanic community.
The PMAHCC is a member of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC). The PMAHCC Board of Directors represents a diverse tapestry of well respected, successful business and community leaders who execute a practical approach to the needs of the business community.
The chamber holds regular workshops and networking events to not only promote, develop, advocate and advance the futures of our members, but to raise money for our scholarship fund. The PMAHCC hosts some of the largest and best attended Hispanic-oriented networking opportunities in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Our members have a unique opportunity to mix and mingle with Pittsburgh’s movers and shakers in some of the area’s finest venues.
The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation (PMAHCCF) is a 501(c)(3) organization created: to promote the growth of the Hispanic business community in the region, provide academic, professional, and technical opportunities to community members, participate in charitable activities, raise funds to support the development of programs that will benefit the membership and to promote Hispanic culture, languages, history, and art in the region.
The future of economic and societal growth is always the future generation. It is for this reason that the PMAHCC Foundation is currently focused on our Scholarship Program which includes a general scholarship for Latino/Hispanic students who will continue studies after graduating from high school; and the Rob Vega Memorial Scholarship awarded to a Latino/Hispanic Law School Student who display the same Academic, Familial and Civic qualities that Rob did.
Most of the funds for both scholarships come from the Hispanic Heritage Month Gala every two years. Funds are also raised through smaller fundraising events and individual donors.
The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s members and their supporters encourage you and the whole community to contribute to this project and help support outstanding Latino/Hispanic students in our community.
