MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce (BBMC), North Florida’s premier business association. As President of the BBMC, I look forward to working with you and enhancing your footprint in North Florida’s economy.
The BBMC was organized to create and promote a climate throughout Leon, Gadsden, Franklin, Jefferson and Wakulla counties, where minority and women-owned businesses can operate in a productive and profitable manner. As a former state director for the Office of Supplier Diversity and President of the Florida Regional Minority Business Council, I know all too well how difficult it is for minority owned businesses to prosper without the proper access to the necessary tools and network.
Our businesses and jobs are at a disadvantage in the current climate of this market. More specifically, minority owned and operated businesses have taken the brunt force of these tough economic times. It’s time to make a change in our communities by creating programs that lower unemployment, increase consumer confidence and provide greater opportunities for growth.
As President of the BBMC, I invite you to work by my side to empower, strengthen and rebuild our communities and economy.
Under the leadership of the Corporate Roundtable and my office, the BBMC will be the voice for the minority business owners in our region. We will work daily to enhance the opportunities for established and newer businesses in our community. Lastly, we will be successful in our efforts to bring change throughout our region.
Thank you for visiting with us. I encourage you to become a member and join us on this journey.
