Dear Colleague,

I am pleased to personally welcome you to the San Francisco African American Chamber of Commerce (SFAACC) as a new member. The SFAACC is dedicated to advancing the general welfare and prosperity of the San Francisco Bay Area, improving the business climate, and advocating on behalf of African American businesses in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. We offer our members educational support through workshops and seminars, business planning and mentoring.


To make the most of your membership, I strongly encourage you to get involved and participate in the activities of the Chamber. As with most things in life, the more you put into the Chamber, the more you will get out of it. There are many opportunities available to be involved. The Chamber’s vibrant committee work includes Advocacy, Community Engagement, Membership Development, Small Business Development, and Programs.


Join a committee that focuses on topics or issues that interest you, sponsor a Chamber event, come and network with other local professionals at our monthly business mixers. I invite you to participate as a member of our team and work side by side with African American professionals who are devoted to the area’s success as much as you are.


We are an active Chamber that looks to advancing its member’s growth and prosperity and provide increased opportunities and value for your membership. As your advocate, the Chamber’s goal is to unite the business community, convey your business interests to policy-makers and advance the African American community’s economic health.

From the community sponsored Juneteenth Gala Dinner, to the ongoing member education programs, to the monthly mixers that meet to address critical issues that impact our community – the SFAACC is ‘Where Business & Community Connect’!


Membership in the San Francisco African American Chamber of Commerce offers opportunities for not only your business to grow, but for you to grow as an individual as we partner in building a stronger African American community. We are here for our members and WE MEAN BUSINESS!



Matthew Thomas, President
