Biographical Sketch

The Lubbock Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (LHCC) had its genesis in 1974 when a group of local Hispanic business leaders formed Commerciantes Organizados Mexico America (COMA). The organization's membership voted in April 2008 to become a part of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce. Similarly, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce's membership voted to approve the merger. Subsequently, Jorge Moreno was hired as the Vice President of the newly formed Hispanic Business Division of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce. Countless businesses and individuals have been helped, guided and educated by the Hispanic chamber over the years.

While the local chamber was helping businesses to grow and develop, its own growth and development expanded in 2001 when it was named as the Small Chamber of the Year in statewide and national competitions. The term "small chamber" refers to cities below 200,000 in population--a level that Lubbock has since surpassed.
