A message from our current SACC President, Sohail Hassan.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I announce the 30-year anniversary of the South Asian Chamber of Commerce. This significant milestone marks our “Pearl Anniversary,” symbolizing the long-lasting, solid, and strong bond that we have formed over the years. The pearl also represents wisdom, purity, and love, reflecting the values and principles that SACC upholds in our community.

I would like to take this opportunity to recognize and pay tribute to our Founding Members, Past Presidents, Chairmans, and all those who have worked tirelessly to nurture this organization to its current pre-eminent position as the first and oldest South Asian Chamber in Houston, Texas. Over the past 30 years, SACC has been filled with countless activities, events, government outreach programs, and budding entrepreneurs, all aimed at fostering relationships between South Asian businessmen and women in the city of Houston.

As we celebrate our Pearl Anniversary, we are planning an ambitious agenda to commemorate this milestone in a grand scale. We are also looking forward to another year of helping businesses grow and prosper through exposure at SACC’s events, networking mixers, and seminars.

Membership in the SACC means unparalleled access to business opportunities, strategic events, thought leadership, and networking. We are honored to have the privilege to serve you as your South Asian Chamber of Commerce and encourage you to participate as an active member. 

With the generous support from our board members, we hope to achieve unparalleled growth of our chamber in 2023 and the coming years.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the South Asian Chamber of Commerce. Here’s to another 30 years of success and prosperity!

Sohail Hassan
President 2019-2023
