African American Business Association Kick-Off
Joliet - It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite all members of the Joliet community to the kick-off event for our newest sub-group, the African American Business Association. The African American Business Association is a collaboration and vision that has now come to fruition between the Chamber and community members. These individuals from the community approached the Chamber with a need for the formation of a business focused group to serve African American owners, managers, employees, and individuals.
The overall focus of the new group will cover four main topics including Business & Economic Development, Job Readiness, Professional Development, and Networking / Special Events. The main drive is to open new doors, develop future entrepreneurs, strengthen skills, and expand networks.
We strongly believe that the African American Business Association will carry on the tradition of respected sub-groups and deliver quality programs and events. The Mission of the this group is as follows: “To advocate for the creation, growth, and general welfare of African American businesses throughout the Joliet Region, while fostering economic development in the African American communities.”
Please be our guest on Thursday, July 20 at the Jacob Henry Victorian Ballroom as we unveil this new sub-group. The event will take place from 5 to 7 PM and will include remarks, networking, complimentary hors’ d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. There will be no charge to attend and we encourage you to help us in spreading the word about this exciting new venture. For more information please contact the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce & Industry at 815.727.5371.
