The AHCC – Encouraging Small Businesses in New Mexico

Established with the intention of promoting positive Native American culture, Gathering of Nations Limited is a non-profit organization based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. One of the many ways this group assists their members, who are comprise all 552 American Indian tribes and 220 Canadian tribal bands, is by encouraging literacy and the educational goals of Native American students.

Gathering of Nations is affiliated with a number of community-enriching organizations, including the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce (AHCC), which helps to sustain the growth and success of small businesses. Closely associated with the Small Business Administration (SBA), AHCC dedicates its efforts to developing new opportunities for business owners in New Mexico.

By supporting a variety of certification programs which work to improve the state’s economic climate, such as Quality New Mexico and the New Mexico 9000 Program, AHCC helps its members achieve greater prosperity. The AHCC also partners with organizations that offer start-up loans and training to small business owners.
