Expected to bring more than 500 business and civic leaders from across the region, this is the Chamber’s most prominent membership event of the year and Philadelphia’s most significant networking event connecting not only African American business owners and executives, but a diverse audience of regional influencers.

For 23 years, the AACC have worked to enhance the growth and effectiveness of African-American owned businesses in the region and improve economic conditions within the regional African-American community.

A significant feature at this year’s event is “A Conversation with Ulice Payne, Jr.”, the first African-America Baseball CEO.
