Broken Image Tenth Anniversary Awards Luncheon and Annual Business Leadership Conference

The 2017 Conference will serve as a forum to share information, build relationships and to foster an environment of strong, diverse businesses that will strengthen New Jersey’s economy, with a goal of expanding the number of growth oriented and sustainable African American enterprises and leveraging the correlation of African American consumer spending to New Jersey’s economy.


President's Club Breakfast (Invitation Only)

Networking Breakfast


The Purpose of the conference is to build strategic partnerships that will promote supplier diversity. As we know, minority owned businesses have been underperforming for years.  Through Group Forums such as the Business Leadership Conference we provide an opportunity for panelists to share best practices, thereby formulating solutions that will strengthen the overall competitiveness of the state of New Jersey.
