The Black Business Association celebrates
National Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month and in collaboration with the National Women’s History Project’s (NWHP) 2020 theme: “Valiant Women of the Vote,” the Black Business Association (BBA) will present our annual Salute to Black Women Business Conference/Expo & Awards Luncheon.

This inspiring Business Conference and Awards Luncheon not only educates and motivates attendees, but annually attracts more than 500 women entrepreneurs, executives, community leaders, elected officials, mothers, daughters and sisters for high-level networking. We are especially proud of one of the highlights of the conference, our special workshop entitled, “Role Models for Success,” an interactive workshop for young ladies ages 13-18 years old to learn about business ownership from successful women entrepreneurs and corporate leaders.

The EXPO provides our Corporate Sponsors, member businesses and participants the opportunity to network with consumers. Participants may display, market and offer their company service(s) and/or product(s) for sale.

Stay tuned here for announcements of our 2020 honorees. 

We look forward to seeing you Saturday, March 28, 2020!
