Hello and Welcome to the Northern VA Black Chamber of Commerce!
Our Chamber is dedicated to training, education, resources, and developing connections that will drive African American businesses forward. Whether you are a budding entrepreneur or a well-established CEO, the Chamber plans to provide services that will help you get to the next level. Come join us and help “level the playing field”.
I sincerely hope you will come out to hear the incredible Author and Keynote Speaker, Maggie Anderson on May 17th. I am still reading her book, Our Black Year, which I find to be both inspirational and insightful. The truth in her book speaks volumes of the long road we have ahead to help black entrepreneurs develop basic, everyday businesses. Mrs. Anderson has encouraged me to focus more on “Buying Black”. I challenge you to do the same….when was the last time you proactively sought to shop at a black-owned business?
Joining our Chamber will make this step easier for everyone, when we begin publishing black-owned businesses on our site. We are still developing our site and recruiting new members, so this will take some time. But together, we can do it.
If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go TOGETHER!
