Join the M.O.V.E.MENTFor over 15 years the African American Chamber has offered the most robust set of minority business programs in the region, and helped hundreds of businesses grow. Despite our best efforts, the African American community continues to have:
An unemployment rate that is 2X the rest of the population
Largest disparities in education and wealth in the nation.
If we were to just spend 1 dime of each dollar made make with African American owned companies, we would have stronger companies and create 1 million jobs nationally.
While African American buying power exceeds $1 trillion (the 17th largest economy in the world).
We can change this. MOVE with us.

WHAT: A first time-ever networking event uniting the leadership and members of four local minority Chambers in supporting economic inclusion and small business growth and development. Ohio Lt. Governor Mary Taylor will be the keynote speaker for this event.
WHEN: Thursday, July 9, 2015 from 5 until 7 p.m. There is no cost to attend this event, however, pre-registration is required.
WHERE: The new Anderson Pavilion. Located under Carol Anns Carousel in Smale Riverfront Park on Mehring Way. Lot D is the closest parking lot to the event.
The collection of ethnically diverse business associations found within the Cincinnati USA region is unparalleled for any Midwestern city. The representation of thousands of businesses provides the economic fuel regionally, domestically, and internationally to grow and attract business relationships. Lt. Governor Taylor leads Ohio’s Common Sense Initiative (CSI) to reform Ohio’s regulatory policies, as well as to serve as the director of the Ohio Department of Insurance. These two assignments dovetail together to make Ohio a more jobs, and business, friendly state. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s largest small-business group, also named Taylor a “Guardian of Small Business” for her outstanding voting record on behalf of Ohio’s small-business owners. Ohio has outpaced the nation in job growth with more than a quarter million new private sector jobs created since January 2011 and consistently lower unemployment than the national average.
