Founded in 1988, Orange County Chinese American Chamber of Commerce (OCCACC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of primarily Chinese American entrepreneurs and business professionals interested in accomplishing their professional and personal goals. OCCACC leverages its wide range of professional expertise, relationships, and connections to help members achieve their business and personal aspirations. With its large member base, OCCACC serves as a premiere platform for business opportunities and resources. As a result, OCCACC strives to be a model Chamber of Commerce organization championing businesses in the greater Orange County area.

As a growing number of Chinese immigrants were starting to settle and establish businesses in Orange County, a group of Chinese American business professionals that wanted a strong unified voice for local Chinese American businesses established OCCACC. The early focus of the organization was to assist, nurture, and promote the development and growth of Chinese American businesses in the greater Orange County area. As the organization evolved, OCCACC expanded its activities to include mixers, seminars, and business expos to integrate itself into the current business landscape. Additionally, since 1993, OCCACC has provided scholarships to outstanding high school seniors in need of financial assistance for higher education. With its continued success and strong leadership, OCCACC has grown its member base exponentially over the years, resulting in numerous service awards from elected officials at the local, state, and federal level.

As OCCACC continues to grow and expand to better serve its members, it needs to incorporate technology into business operations and build strategic partnerships with similar organizations. Leveraging social networking and digital platforms like Facebook, WeChat, Eventbrite, and Dropbox will further increase OCCACC’s visibility and accessibility. Establishing strategic partnerships with organizations like the Irvine Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Clubs will encourage and promote business exchanges and resources. These two goals are the key drivers to sustaining OCCACC’s success.

Currently, OCCACC members can take advantage of not only the expansive services and connections that help their business enterprises, but also camaraderie that empowers personal welfare and growth. Through mixers and annual domestic and international excursions, members have abundant opportunities to bond. With its unique opportunities for personal and professional growth, OCCACC stands out as one of the premiere Chamber of Commerce in the greater Orange County area.
