Dear Members, Supporters and Friends:
Welcome to the website of the Black Business Association (BBA)!
Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, we are one of the oldest, active, ethnic business associations in the United States of America. The BBA has been influential in the incubation and growth of literally tens of thousands of African American businesses over the past 46 years. Across the nation and around the world, we have access to and influence with more than 250,000 African American-owned and women-/minority-owned firms by means of strategic alliances with like-minded business development organizations.
The BBA is proud of our achievements in furtherance of supplier diversity programs, in providing advice and technical support to emerging and established businesses, and the maintenance of strong partnerships with corporate and government leaders who share belief in our mission of economic empowerment. The accomplishments of the BBA have been many, over a period that has seen the end of one millennium and the start of another, and yet we recognize there is still work to be done.
To our valued members, sponsors, affiliates and colleagues: we thank you for your continued support, we appreciate your loyalty to our goals and objectives, and we look forward to future mutually beneficial endeavors.
With empowering regards,
Earl 'Skip' Cooper II
President and CEO
