Making a Black Chamber Effective

Written by National Black Chamber of Commerce (NBCC)

“Thanks to all who participated in our National Call to Action! Special thanks to White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow, Congressman Danny Davis, Dr. Jeffrey Sterling and John Harmon for taking the time to discuss the CARE Act, medical supply contracts, affirmative action and next steps going forward.

The National Black Chamber of Commerce believes that transactions + relationships = transformation and your continued support enables the entire Black business community to realize that equation.”

— Larry Ivory, Chairman, NBCC

Making a Black Chamber Effective

The time has come for us to gather up all the organizations that refer to themselves as ” Black Chamber of Commerce” or something similar.

Immediately we will start evaluating and rating chapters according to their efficiency and accomplishments.

They must be astute in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 18 Ways to Kill a Chamber, Section 3 of the HUD Act, have viewed our video of the late Parren J. Mitchell and of the late Dr. Arthur A. Fletcher and understand Executive Order 11246, The Origins of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, the structure of the NBCC, etc. as a minimum.

Additionally, each prospective member (chapter) should read and understand our description of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. To study and learn more about this important document we refer you to: https://www.nationalbcc.org/news/issues/1036-nbcc-urges-all-state-attorney-generals-to-issue-legal-opinion-on-title-vi-living-example-attached .

Getting certified as a recognized member of the National Black Chamber of Commerce federation is not an arduous task. However, the first step is to fill out a membership form and pay your initial dues. Contact the National Office (cdebow@nationalbcc.org) for official paperwork and registration.

It is our goal to make each and every member of the National Black Chamber of Commerce an efficient champion and warrior for the empowerment and effectiveness of BLACK BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT.

Don’t wait another moment to become a part of this historical and pace setting organization. It is the only missing link from our historical Civil Rights Movement.

The National Black Chamber of Commerce is the largest Black organization addressing African American economic issues and policies throughout the world. We were incorporated May 23, 1993 and will celebrate our 28th anniversary this July.
