Dear Members and Supporters,
As Vice-Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of the San Francisco African American Chamber of Commerce (SFAACC), I am honored to address you with pride and enthusiasm as we reflect on our organization's remarkable journey and look ahead to the promising year of 2024.
For five decades, the SFAACC has been a stalwart advocate for Black businesses in San Francisco, championing their cause with unwavering dedication. Our rich history has shaped the local business landscape and contributed to the global success of African American entrepreneurs. Today, the SFAACC stands as one of California's most influential minority business organizations, tirelessly representing and promoting the interest of African American business owners in our vibrant city.
Our commitment to advocacy and economic development forms the bedrock of our mission as we strive to create a robust financial foundation that empowers the self-determination and survival of African American businesses. As a non-profit 501c3 corporation, we are driven to uplift our community and pave the way for future generations of Black entrepreneurs.
The legacy of the SFAACC is not confined to our city limits; we have been instrumental in founding and supporting numerous organizations, including the California Black Chamber and the National Black Chamber of Commerce. It is a testament to our enduring commitment to fostering growth and prosperity, not just locally but on a national scale.
I am proud to be the first woman in the position and fully aware of its responsibility.
My dedication to our members is unwavering, and I am committed to being their voice in times of challenge and success. While the path may not always be fair, I stand as a staunch advocate to ensure our members are not forgotten and their rights are protected.
Your presence and contributions have been invaluable to the success of the SFAACC, from impactful events like the Black History Event, joyous Juneteenth Celebration, and insightful Black Business Month Conference to engaging end-of-the-year Business Summit- each moment has been a steppingstone in our collective journey towards success.
We have also taken pride in spotlighting our members during San Francisco Small Business Week. Wealth management, real estate, finance, and construction business leads have equipped our members with the tools for sustainable success.
Looking ahead to 2024, I am filled with optimism. The SFAACC is not just an organization that promotes success locally; we are a global force working to keep our Black community economically strong. Through initiatives focusing on homeownership, education, and finance, we build generational wealth that will leave a lasting impact.
Together, let us forge ahead into 2024 with determination and unity. Our collective efforts will continue to shape the narrative of success for African American businesses. Thank you for your unwavering support, and I look forward to another year of shared achievements.
