Today is a special day in our history. Today marks the day in which slavery was ended in the nation's final holdout, 2 1/2 years after the emancipation proclamation. Today is a day of celebration where our community gathers together to unite and celebrate while focusing on education and self-improvement. To honor this day the Black American Chamber of Commerce serving the greater Portland area is officially launched! We are from the community, for the community and will serve the business needs of our community. Together we shall thrive.
We are a community-based organization focused on helping make the world around us a better, happier place. With the help of our tireless staff, we organize weekly business networking events, exciting community-building events, and provide scholarships for our leaders of tomorrow.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our chamber of commerce vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our business mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
