The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (SHCCNJ), had its beginnings in 1989 when Business leaders met with Governor Tom Kean and were encouraged to start a Chamber to foster, mentor and train Hispanic Owned business in New Jersey. Over the years, various publications have ranked our chamber among the largest in the state.
 
As a not-for-profit organization for over 27 years, SHCCNJ has become the voice of the 116,000 Hispanic-Owned Businesses that contributes over $20 Billion to the State’s economy. The Chamber is the premier vehicle to access the Latino community and its formidable purchasing power, as evidenced by our growth of non-Hispanic membership reaching 45 percent.
