BLACK ECONOMIC COUNCIL
4th Annual Urban Economic Conference
"Economic Recovery; Opening New Markets"
The Black Economic Council (BEC) nationally recognized for its focus on business development and job creation for minority-owned enterprises is hosting its 4th Annual Urban Economic Conference October 15, 2009. This conference themed "Economic Recovery: Opening New Markets" will focus on access to procurement and supply chain opportunities, micro-lending, credit issues, financial planner, and quality management. Minority- and women-owned business enterprise (MWBEs) are among the fastest growing segments of the U.S. economy. In a recent statement the President announced to increase access to contracting opportunities for Minority-owned small businesses:
“Small and minority-owned businesses must play a significant role in our efforts to restore economic growth. Small businesses employ half of the nation’s private sector workforce; create a large share of the Nation’s new jobs; and introduce many groundbreaking ideas into the marketplace. It is essential that we provide our Nation’s small businesses with maximum practicable opportunity to participate in Federal Government contracting.”
- President Barack Obama
Who should attend?
The BEC Urban Economic Conference is a must attend event! If you are a Minority and or women-owned firm you are constantly faced with unique challenges; in order to build a successful business you have to have competitive strategies to overcome these challenges.

Corporate sponsors along with government agencies will be in attendance to provide in-depth knowledge on how MWBEs can take full advantage of new market opportunities; Hear and interact with corporate executives and government officials from Wells Fargo, Comerica Bank, Verizon, Citibank, AT&T, Bank of America, HSBC, Bank of the West and PG&E
Comments from those who have attended and participated in our pervious events:
“The BEC’s 3rd Annual Urban Economic Conference on October 9 this year was electrifying. The day was filled with many relative workshops and panels paralleling today’s economy from financial strategies to supplier diversity to private equity/growth capital and more. I congratulate the BEC on a job well done. I’m looking forward to a repeat performance next year. Excellent!”
