Each year, our Hispanic Business Receptionwelcomes prominent business leaders, elected officials and non-profit/community partners to hear noted speakers and to savor the fabulous cuisine and entertainment emblematic of our Hispanic culture and community.
The Dulles Regional Chamber’s Hispanic Business Council was launched in 2005 as a Committee in an effort to broaden the Chamber’s membership by inviting Latino business owners to bring their talents into the chamber and to help their businesses grow. The astounding response to the new Committee was such that it was promoted by the Chamber to Council status in 2006.
Meeting Schedule: First Thursday of each month from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Guests who are not DRCC members may attend up to two general meetings. Membership in DRCC is required for HBC membership
