Alamo Asian American Chamber of Commerce
The Alamo Asian American Chamber of Commerce (Alamo AACC), established in 1996, is one of the fastest growing Chambers of Commerce in San Antonio.
With Asians being the fastest growing ethnic group in Texas, and the important role the Asian economy has in the global economy, the Alamo AACC is a bridge connecting local businesses with Asian markets. We facilitate the creation of local and international alliances supporting job creation and business growth here in the Alamo City and South Texas.
Every year the Alamo AACC hosts several events, such as informational seminars, inbound foreign investor delegation meetings, and international outbound delegations. These events help our members learn more about the economic and market outlook of different Asian countries, especially those we have a Sister City relationship with. We also help our members explore collaborative partnerships with international companies looking to get into the U.S. market and vice versa. We also advocate for you on the issues that are important for our members and the vibrancy of our local economy.
Our proposed program for 2016-2017 will include:
Seminar and Networking – Consul General Office of different countries
Business Opportunities with the City of San Antonio and Bexar County
Outbound Delegation to Asian countries
Industry specific events
Country specific events

What is AAACC?
The Alamo Asian American Chamber of Commerce (Alamo AACC) is an action agency designed to meet business community needs with primary focus on international business. It is a voluntary organization of individuals and businesses that band together to advance the commercial, financial, industrial, and civic interests of a diverse community. The Chamber serves a wide variety of functions on behalf of its members that individual members may otherwise find cost prohibitive from organizing on their own. It serves as a civic clearinghouse, a public relations counselor, a legislative representative at the local, state and national levels of government, as well as an information bureau and a research and promotions medium.
Bexar County – A Place to do Business
The Chamber strives to be one of the lead organizations in the growth and development of our community. The attractiveness and uniqueness of the community along with the many opportunities that exist in Bexar County continue to spur growth. With more than 60,000 local businesses employing about half the local population, Bexar County is attractive to businesses large and small. A robust service sector about 375,000 employees strong coupled with strong retail markets, caters to a higher than national average local median income – about $50,000 – creating an environment conducive to growth.
The Alamo AACC Helping to Shape Bexar County’s Future
The Alamo Asian American Chamber of Commerce develops and works to integrate the Asian business community into the established framework of Bexar County. As a member in the Asian American Alliance of San Antonio (AAASA), our members forge alliances with the greater San Antonio community by educating and expanding civic engagement and fostering community leaders now and for future.
Through its Education Foundation, the Alamo ACC promotes leadership in youth and helps to build culturally diverse future leaders. The San Antonio Youth Leadership Program (SAYLP), jointly hosted with Communities in Schools, is a leadership program for middle school students. Modeled after other leadership programs for adults, this program cultivates and promotes leadership within middle school youth of our community. SAYLP is a week long program comprised of visits to corporations and public institutions that fuel growth in the Bexar County community.
