USBC honored by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency 2016 National Minority Development Week

 The U.S. Black Chambers, the only national advocacy organization working solely to advance Black businesses and building economic power in the Black community, was named Distinguished Advocate of the Year. The award, given by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency was announced as part of the 2016 National Minority Enterprise Development Week Award winners. This is the first year USBC has earned this award.

Each year MBDA honors “Champions of Minority Business Development” through its National MED Week. The initiative recognizes the achievements of minority entrepreneurs, along with those individuals and organizations that have demonstrated leadership and commitment in advancing global minority business enterprise.

“Each year the U.S. Black Chambers’ commitment to building the economic power of the Black community is strengthened. Whether talking to officials in the federal administration, or working with larger corporations, advocacy on behalf of small business and economic empowerment is a cornerstone of our work,” said Ron Busby, Sr., the president and CEO of the U.S. Black Chambers. “USBC’s partnerships are key to our success, and to the success of the Black community. We’re proud to be honored by the Minority Business Development Agency, and look forward to our continued collaborative work.”
