Serving as the president of the oldest Black chamber in the nation is a privilege and an honor. Throughout the chamber’s 94-year history, we have been focused on developing, enhancing, and promoting an ecosystem that produces valuable business opportunities for our members and communities across North Texas through education, advocacy, and resources to stimulate growth. We also seek to remove all barriers to Black businesses and organizations that keep them from fully participating in our local, regional, and national economies. With the continued support, collaborations, and partnerships, the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce creates innovative programs and opportunities to improve business outcomes, strengthen and prepare Black businesses for new opportunities, and in the end, to make a continual difference in our communities. Landmark years like 2020 have reminded us all of the importance of building and sustaining strong partnerships for the benefit of historically underutilized and underfunded businesses and nonprofits and the community at large. Membership in the DBCC is an essential step toward successful business and organizational outcomes. We seek your continued support and valued membership to forge ahead towards our centennial – in a few short years. Join us as we traverse the unknown through an unprecedented time in our nation’s history toward economic recovery, closing the racial wealth gap, and ensuring equity around access to capital for all entrepreneurs. Help us make Dallas a premier place to start and grow a business for all our citizens.
We offer a full range of chamber benefits!
Our Voice Matters
The chamber takes on the tough issues and opposes new regulations, taxes, fees, assessments and costs directed at small businesses. We also help protect the principles of free enterprise and aids businesses in being treated fairly.
When you get involved with the chamber of commerce, you will become better connected to your community. You will become more aware of community and business issues. You can help solve problems, and members can help you solve your problems.
