Chairwoman’s Welcome

I am humbled to serve as the Chair of the Board for the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce (the “Chamber”) for 2019-2020. Working with our Board of Directors, Advisory Board, Foundation Board, members, and supporters to continue the forward movement of the Chamber is one of the greatest blessings I could receive.

Over the years, the Chamber has upheld its motto – “Access. Advocacy. Awareness.” – by providing our members access to business opportunities through networking and direct contact with supplier diversity representatives from the private sector; by advocating regarding policies locally and at the state and national levels that impact black businesses; and by providing awareness through campaigns such as our “Buy Black” directory and our Pinnacle Awards. These efforts are just a few of a robust listing of what we do. Now, we need YOU to make us even stronger.

Join today as a member, partner, or sponsor. We are stronger together. The Chamber is a place for every business that wants to improve their bottom line, elevate their profile, and make a positive contribution to the Houston business community.
