The Central Virginia African American Chamber of Commerce is proud to stand with President Barack Obama to support and celebrate his proclamation that the month of November will be recognized as National Entrepreneurship Month.
President Obama proclaimed that “During National Entrepreneurship Month, we celebrate the entrepreneurs who serve their communities and bolster our economy, and we pledge our support for them in their pursuit of the ideas and innovations of tomorrow.”
The mission of the Central Virginia African American Chamber of Commerce is to strengthen the community by supporting and promoting the recycling of dollars within the African American community.
The chamber’s founder and CEO, Ervin Clarke stated “Our mission reflects the purpose and need for the recognition of entrepreneurs and the small business owners that we work with and spend with daily. We take this mission seriously, and work on behalf of businesses in the African American community as they grow and thrive. Our chamber membership is comprised of a variety of talented, innovative, and successful entrepreneurs. We celebrate each of them.
Every day, we support and work to foster an environment of growth. During this month, however, we put greater emphasis on the entrepreneurs and small business owners who are the backbone of our community.”
