HCC-Southwest Student Chamber of Commerce
The Southwest branch of the HCC Student Chamber of Commerce was formed in 2012. In line with other branches of the Chamber, the purpose of the Southwest branch is to support the entrepreneurial efforts of HCC students (as well as staff and faculty) through ongoing programming related to starting and developing entrepreneurial enterprises.
We are in the process of recruiting members, developing community partnerships, and planning our first event. Ultimately, the Southwest branch of the HCC Student Chamber of Commerce hopes to host a variety of events including regular student meetings, networking events, lecture series, and hands-on workshops that involve both students and community members.
