At the USHCC we believe highlighting the impact of women leaders in our community is essential to inspire the next generation of leaders; Alice McMillan is one of those leaders.

Alice McMillan from the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GAHCC), a local chamber member of the USHCC, was named “1 of 4 ATX Women to Watch” by Austin Woman Magazine! McMillan serves as the Director of Strategic Initiatives at the chamber and plays a vital role in leading and coordinating the award-winning Hispanic Austin Leadership program, or HAL. The HAL executive-leadership program has generated a seven-figure economic impact in Austin and was recently named one of the top seven Hispanic Chamber leadership programs in the United States. Its mission is to provide business leaders and professionals the opportunities to develop business awareness, civic awareness, leadership skills and networks.

Alice is a champion for Hispanics in the communities she has worked in. While working at the city of Springdale, AR she was responsible with advancing the needs of the Latino community and planning for the Latino population and business growth in Northwest Arkansas where Latinos comprise 36% of the city of Springdale’s population.

McMillan is an alumna of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville where she graduated from the Sam M. Walton College of Business with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree. She majored in Marketing and minored in Spanish.

In her spare time, she enjoys exploring, traveling, playing her saxophone, calling the hogs, and cheering on her favorite sports teams!

The USHCC wants to congratulate Alice for her continues commitment and engagement in her chamber and in her community.
