Your membership is a key component for success. It's the only way we can make a difference.

Our primary goals are to bring awareness of opportunities to the black business community, and to facilitate relationships to network and grow businesses.

Among ideas under discussion are workshops to teach people how to own a business, and how to stay in business, and how to help black-owned businesses learn how to do business with the government under programs that set contracts aside for business that are considered disadvantaged. Teaching entrepreneurship to the young is another idea.
