Statewide Minority Business Networking
Thank you to all participants in the recent Statewide Minority Business Networking Conference.

The recent economic downfall has had a devastating effect on New Jersey’s business communities and especially the minority business community. Thus, we must strategically use New Jersey’s economic development resources to ensure that all segments of the business community benefit and participate in our State’s recovery. We must work together to mandate that the economic recovery is inclusive and reflective of New Jersey’s diverse population.

With that goal in mind, The African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (AACCNJ), The Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey (LLANJ), the Regional Alliance for Small Contractors, and NY/NJ Marriott & Renaissance Hotels hosted the Statewide Minority Business Networking Conference on August 14, 2009 at Newark Liberty International Airport, Marriott Hotel. This historic event was well attended, informative and laid the foundation for future collaborative efforts. A full conference report will be released soon.

Again, thank you for making the conference a great success!
