Jamaica USA Chamber of Commerce - The Business Arm of the Jamaican Diaspora

The Jamaica USA Chamber of Commerce (JAUSACC) is a not-for-profit business and professional membership organization with a missio to empower our members to create and promote trade, while strengthening economic and cultural opportunities between Jamaica and the United States. 

The brainchild of former Jamaican Consul General, Ricardo Allicock,JAUSACC was organized 16 years ago in 2003 and was formalized and registered in March 2004. JAUSACC is the only Jamaican Chamber of Commerce in Florida, and the only known Jamaican Chamber of Commerce in the United States of America. JAUSACC creates and represents Business Linkages among Jamaican businesses in Jamaica, and in the Diaspora. We are highly focused on helping to grow our small business members, as well as creating and maintaining linkages among members throughout the U.S. and increasing trade and investment between Jamaica and the United States. 

We are true to our motto "Partnership in Commerce" which guides us toward several partnerships and collaborations that we have established to enhance our presence and to assist in delivering quality services to our members.  Some examples include:  MOU with JAMPRO which helps to expedite connections between businesses and ease the burden of trade that our members may encounter. We are partners with the U.S. Small Business Admiistration and with the  Minority Business Development Agency Export and Disaster Recovery Programs.  These relationships contribute toward the ability of our Jamaican Chamber to provide FREE Technical Assistance to help develop and grow our small, minority and women business members.  Membership is also open to individuals, students, government agencies, economic development agencies and other nonprofit organizations.

Through our nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 Jamaica USA Chamber Foundation, we raise funds to provide scholarship opportunities to Jamaican Students in Jamaica and the Diaspora, and make other charitable contributions to educational. entrepreeurial, and healthcare projects in the Diaspora and in Jamaica.

JAUSACC is governed by a volunteer board of directors, led by a volunteer president.  The sitting Consul General of Jamaica, currently Mr. Oliver Mair, holds the position of honorary chairman.  This position ensure the connection between JAUSACC and the government of Jamaica.
