Happy Friday Everyone !!!

This communication is the first "monthly message from the WSBCC Vice President". I will communicate with members once a month with updates, feedback, and suggestions designed specifically for WSBCC members in good standing.

It is an honor and privilege to be a part of a team of people who are passionate and committed to success for our businesses, success for our families, success for our communities and success for each other as individuals. Randon, Andrew, Gloria, Cynthia, Valerie and myself (all volunteers) want to continue the growth and success of the Winston Salem Black Chamber of Commerce and each of you are essential to helping us be successful !!!

It has been two months since my last communication. In that email I asked each of you for ideas and suggestions to help us improve. Thank you Mo Redd and Charmon Baker for responding. Your feedback has been noted and I will contact you regarding the implementation of those suggestions and thoughts. For others, please take time to let me know what you think about how we (WSBCC) can better meet your business needs as members.

I am happy to report that the WSBCC has a new live website. The address is Please review it and utilize it. The website has information on our history, current leadership team, services offered, membership benefits, membership applications, and a listing of partners and other resources available to you as paid members. I encourage you to take advantage of what is offered !!! You can subscribe and receive updates regarding upcoming events, regular monthly meetings (normally the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30p at the Enterprise Center on MLK Jr. Drive in Winston Salem), and special events.

In addition, the directory has all members listed. There is a need for each member to provide either a logo or a photo. If you have not provided either of those yet, please do so asap. You can send it to me or to Dancing Grass Studios. If we do not have either a photo or logo, we will insert the new WSBCC logo until we receive what is needed.

Some upcoming events include our regular meeting on Tuesday 6/11/2019 at 6:30p (with some special guests attending) and participation (with other community partners) at the annual Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday 6/22/2019. Check out the website for more details.

Our Program/Events Chair Gloria and I have had discussion regarding additional programming and events between now and 4/2020. I will provide updates in each of my monthly messages to keep you informed and engaged. Please feel free to reach out to me directly (my contact info is in my signature line) should you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Thanks again for your continued support. Have a great weekend !!!

All the best,
