Dear SFAACC Members and Business Community,
We are honored that you have been a member of the SFAACC and have allowed us to support you in marketing your business and creating workshops around your business needs. During this season of thanksgiving, we want to encourage you and stress the importance of sustainability in the Small Business Community.
Despite the relatively low percentage of African Americans in San Francisco, these business owners are crucial not only to SF but to America’s long-term prosperity as they face long-term challenges. The importance of African American businesses cannot be understated. They bring diversity, innovation, and a unique perspective to the local economy. As part of the SFAACC family, we continue to support and encourage these businesses, which are essential in creating opportunities and a voice for the community.
The discounted membership fee of $250.00 for November is a beautiful initiative, as it can help more businesses join or renew their membership and take advantage of the resources and support provided by SFAACC. Your membership benefits individual companies and contributes to the overall economic growth and empowerment of the African-American community in San Francisco.
On behalf of the SFAACC Board and Staff, we hope you have a productive and successful year ahead and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Given the positive impact you are making in the business community, we all have much to be thankful for.
**Please note this membership drive expires on November 30, 2023. Please note that this discounted membership only applies to new and previous members, not corporations.
Coming November 13:
