A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT

Terrance Clark
In April, The Council will host a Marketing Conference for our Class One minority businesses to assist them in developing their ability to more effectively market their services. The event will be sponsored by Bank of America and exemplifies one of the many partnerships that the Council continues to develop.

The Council will also hold our second annual Corporate Appreciation Breakfast on April 21st at New York Life, where we will honor our 2015 corporate and MBE sponsors for their partnership and support of the Council. Our annual MBE meeting will be held on April 27th, where we will discuss programming for 2016, along with facilitating interactive panels on various business topics, focused on business growth.

We look forward to your continued support and participation in our annual Golf event at the Montclair Country Club on June 7th in Montclair, NJ, as well as our Business Opportunity Expo on June 8th at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. These events will enable business owners and corporate members alike to interact, renew and develop relationships that lead to new business opportunities. Please look out for additional information on these two important events. And, as usual, we thank you for your continued support of the Council.


Terrence Clark, President & CEO
