Thanks for the job you do, I enjoyed meeting you here in Memphis. I will be looking into getting more involved in the Black Chamber. In the spirit of Claude Anderson we must create opportunities for our dollars to circulate more in our community. Again thank for the job you do.
Thank you,Ronald Meredith

Several weeks ago I attended one of the most impacting conferences hosted by The Coalition Building Across Diverse Chambers Program. January 13-14, I had the opportunity to be a part of an intense two day chamber coalition workshop. By attending this workshop it has helped lead our chamber in the pathway of setting more creative goals and reinforcing priorities for the year to come. The information that was presented was very useful and our chamber was able to put these ideas into practice immediately upon returning to our office. The workshop was so positive that we proudly hang our Certificate of Completion boldly on our wall of fame.

As a woman/minority owned small business it has been a great privilege and honor to be affiliated with the U.S. Black Chamber. They serve an important and critical role with serious dedication to improving and impacting the government policies that affect our small business community. This is an organization that empowers and improves our opportunities. There is great sense of pride in having USBC be our voice at the Washington D.C. level. Thank you Ron Busby for your dedication and vision to the future of our small business community. You are making a difference!
It wasn't until I joined the United States Black Chamber that I learned about the benefits of partnering with others in my industry. When Brian Morse connected me with ChokoMode, the fashion brand from New York, designer Marcell and I have been able to make money together with our consignment sales. Since then, I made my retail space available for several other designer's in my local community to sell their merchandise. It's a win, win, win because my retail customers in southern California can now add New York fashion to their LA shopping experience with Ali Don®.

After joining USBC, I was connected with a potential business partner in my hometown of Hilliard, Ohio. After meeting we created a beneficial partnership, resulting in securing a federal contract together. Since then we've continued our relationship and look forward to more opportunities to grow together.
