The National Hispanic Business Group (NHBG) was founded in 1985 by a group of prominent Hispanic entrepreneurs with a vision to create an organization entrusted with developing opportunities for Hispanic Businesses. Our goal is to seek out and expand our opportunities for its members by fostering dialogue and economic exchange with the Public and Private sectors, while supporting social change and community empowerment.
Today the NHBG is recognized as a valuable business resource and a voice in the advocacy efforts of the Hispanic business community. Our founders’ vision has grown into an influential network of business leaders who work to break-through the many sectors in the business marketplace. Our members represent many industries with proven track records of performing beyond the expectations of their clients. The more established members nurture and guide the newer members in the growth and development of their respective businesses. With regularly scheduled meetings of the membership and associated bodies, NHBG events, procurement networking opportunities, and ongoing communications and correspondence, the NHBG maintains a direct line of communication with all of its stakeholders.
Our organization is funded by an annually membership fee of $1800. In addition, we host our Annual Gala Dinner, which brings together senior representatives from the private and public sectors. The event awards three individuals whose tireless efforts assist us in achieving our mission. The categories for these awards are Hispanic Corporate Achievement, Corporate Appreciation, and Hispanic Business Achievement. The event also honors exemplary Hispanic students who have excelled in college. The funds for our scholarships are raised at our Annual Golf Outing which is held every September.
The NHBG consists of (10) ten committee’s that allows members to actively participate and have an opinion in the organization.
