“The U.S. Black Chambers is extremely proud to join MBDA in creating greater awareness of access to capital, contracts, and markets,” said Ron Busby, President of the U.S. Black Chambers. “We’re gearing up for Buy MBE Day to do all we can to help promote and commemorate the day throughout our community and to inspire others to spend more dollars with Black-owned businesses.”
Joining forces with the national network of MBDA Business Centers and Specialty Centers, the U.S. Black Chambers' President Ron Busby will serve as a guest speaker during MED Week, will champion and promote support for Black-owned firms, and will continue to advocate for resources for Black-owned businesses impacted by the pandemic.
