2019 Chair Message

Martin Flores – Chair – Bojangles’

Welcome to the Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Charlotte!

¡Bienvenidos a La Camera de Comercio Latinoamericana de Charlotte!


It is truly a pleasure and honor to serve as the 2019 Chair of this amazing organization. Over the years I have seen the LACCC flourish into one of the region’s premier organizations successfully bridging the divide between our Latino and non-Latino business communities. The success of our organization is built on the passion, dedication and commitment of our staff and volunteers in serving this wonderful and diverse market.

Whether you are an entrepreneur looking to start a small business, part of a medium-sized company, or the CEO of a large corporation, you’ve come to the right place. Our extensive list of bilingual educational programs, networking events and seminars are geared towards the professional growth of your teams and your organizations.


If you are looking to volunteer and getting involved in the community, the LACCC has a multitude of opportunities. From assisting with event setup and registration, to joining one of our Board of Director Committees, we have what you’re looking for.


Thank you for your interest in the LACCC and I look forward to personally welcoming you at our next event.
