The Florida Association of Black Chambers of Commerce will host the second annual Black Chamber Day at the Capitol. This is exciting as the event will bring together Chamber leaders from across the state to advocate for small business friendly policies and laws that will enable Florida’s economy to continue to grow.

Small businesses are the biggest job creators and the economic drivers on a national, state, and local level. This event will focus on collective advocacy for the tools and resources our small businesses need to continue to propel Florida’s communities forward.

The Title Sponsor for the kickoff welcome reception is Florida Prepaid College Savings Plans. Last year, FABCC welcomed twelve chambers presidents and their members for the inaugural gathering. This year the reception will be held at Parkview at Cascades on Monday, March 27th.

We are also pleased to have FPL BEPowerFL as our Silver Sponsor the year. On March 28th, we will host a press conference on the Historic Front Steps from 9am until 10am and that will be followed by meetings with key legislators. “It is important for our lawmaker to hear from our chambers and our small business owners. As they draft new laws and amend others, they need to know the struggles of our small businesses, the unnecessary roadblocks, and the solutions that will help our small businesses thrive,” said the associations Founder, Shaheewa
Jarrett, Esq.

The following chambers will be participating in the Black Chamber Day at the Capitol: African-American Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida; Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce of Florida; Black Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach; Broward County Black Chamber of Commerce; Greater First Coast Chamber of Commerce; Gulf Coast Minority Chamber of Commerce; Jacksonville Black Chamber of Commerce; Manasota Black Chamber of Commerce; Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce; Polk County African American Chamber; and The Black Chamber of Commerce at Tampa.

Together, we will help to develop and sustain vibrant and diverse communities in the state.
