Heartland Black Chamber of Commerce

HBCC Leadership

Your business matters!

We are here as your resource and your team behind the scenes helping you to connect, grow and promote commerce within and throughout the Black Business Community.

From the CEO

I am pleased to welcome you personally to the Heartland Black Chamber of Commerce (HBCC). Our Chamber is dedicated to advancing the general welfare and prosperity of the area, improving the black business climate, advocating on behalf of our members, and offering educational support through seminars, publications, business planning and mentoring. We at the Chamber are excited to have you aboard!

To make the most of your membership, I strongly encourage you to get involved and participate in the activities of the Chamber. As with anything in life, the more you put into the Chamber, the more you will get out of it! There are many opportunities available. Join a committee that focuses on a topic that interests you, sponsor a Chamber event, come, and network with other local professionals at our monthly events. I invite you to become an active member of our team and work side by side with businesspeople and professionals who are as devoted to the black business success as you are. I guarantee that you will find your efforts to be rewarding and even fun!

As you may know, your membership in HBCC also makes you a member of the Tri-Chamber of Commerce (HBCC, Hispanic Chamber, and Mid-America LGBT Chamber) at no extra cost. This entitles you to attend affiliate events at the discounted member rate. As well, it is important to remember that when your business joins the Chamber all employees therein are considered members of the Chamber and are similarly encouraged to participate in our events and activities.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or ideas you may have to help us make the Chamber work for you. We are here for our members, and WE MEAN BUSINESS.
