The roots of H.I.R,E are well grounded in the Los Angeles Chapter. In fact, as you will read in Our History, two revenue agents from Los Angeles planted the seed for what is now the Hispanic Internal Revenue Employees, Inc.

 

Our Chapter's mission is to recruit and develop all its members and provide service to our community.
