A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. During this special time, we pay tribute to generations of Asians and Pacific Islanders. Thank you for enriching America’s history and contributing to its future success. From the dawn of the transcontinental railroad to corner grocery stores and major companies, Asian Americans’ contributions to our country have been helping the U.S. economy thrive.
The Council would like to thank Asian American business owners for their commitment to accelerating business growth. Nearly 40-percent of our certified MBEs are Asian American. And, of all the major racial and ethnic groups, Asian Americans are the most likely to own their own small businesses. The success of these businesses contributes to the employment of millions of people. This success also generates billions of dollars every year. The Council is steadfast in providing Asian-American members with the continuous support they need to achieve their growth and business expansion goals and objectives. Our second annual Accelerate 2020 CEO Academy kicked off last week and is just one example of the many development resources and learning opportunities we make available to all of our MBE members.
As we start the second quarter of 2018 and celebrate our 45th anniversary, be sure to register for our Annual Networking for Scholarships Golf Outing. This annual fundraiser helps generate the critical financial support that funds the Council’s Scholarship Program. Additionally, this event provides unique business-development and networking opportunities all held in a beautiful outdoor setting. Also, please plan to participate in The Council’s 2018 Business Exchange. This “best of” networking event is an experience not to miss.
