Texas Border Business

Small business is the main focus of the RGV Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.  We understand how many businesses are having to close their doors for a variety of reasons, but basically due to the COVID-19 economic disaster.  We at the RGVHCC want to assist these businesses by offering a Free Membership for 6 months so they can take advantage of the benefits that we have to offer.  After the 6 months, they can decide if they want to remain a member or not.  Some of the benefits that they can receive is being notified of federal, state and local resources on funding, networking with other business owners to market their business via virtual Mixers, the ability to use our ChamberMaster so they can post their company promotions, job openings, announcements, etc. to where the entire membership of the RGV Hispanic Chamber can see.

The RGVHCC is a non-profit that relies on membership dues, fundraisers and corporate partnerships to fund the chamber.  It was formed in November 1997 and has received many national and state awards during these years for all of their programs and assistance that they have offered to the small businesses.  “We too are hurting as we have had to cancel 3 major events that would fund the chamber for 6 months.  We have cut back on expenses and any extra non-essentials in order to keep servicing our members.  We realize that the COVID-19 has been a major economic disaster to the Valley and we want to help those that have never known of the services that a chamber can provide.”  stated Cynthia M. Sakulenzki, RGVHCC Pres/CEO.  “We want to assist as many people that we can throughout the Rio Grande Valley,” Sakulenzki added.

In addition, the RGVHCC partners with the UTRGV Small Business Development Center, LiftFund, SBA, SCORE, PeopleFund that offer services to our members.  We can schedule meetings to help with Business plans or funding.  We also have a close relationship with all federal, state, and locally elected officials whose attention we have whenever we have a concern that affects the business community or the Valley. The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce also represents us well whenever we have concerns that pertain to the Border.

“We invite people to check our website at www.rgvhcc.com and sign up.  Staff will reach out to them to answer any questions they may have.”  Sakulenzki stated.  For additional information on the Free Membership to the RGVHCC, you can call 928-0060.
