The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (SHCC-NJ) had its beginnings in 1989 when business leaders met with then-Governor Tom Kean and were encouraged to start a Chamber to foster, mentor and train Hispanic-owned businesses in New Jersey.  Over the years, NJ BIZ has ranked the chamber among the largest in the state.

The SHCC-NJ is the flagship of the Small Business Community and its non-Hispanic membership has grown to 45 percent.  The SHCC-NJ is the vehicle to access the Latino community and its formidable purchasing power.  The SHCC-NJ has been actively involved with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
