BLACK MARICOPA CHAMBER

The mission of the Black Maricopa Chamber of Commerce is to promote economic independence and prosperity among Black business entrepreneurs in the City of Maricopa and surrounding areas.   

The Chamber seeks to grow and nurture our own economy within the Maricopa community and beyond. While we promote prosperity and growth within the Black community, we are an all-inclusive organization and encourage working together with other groups.

GOALS & BENEFITS

The goal of the BMCC is to promote and improve business (income) for the business owner. This includes promotion and endorsement of our members services or products through social media, i.e.  ( Facebook, Instagram, Nextdoor and others.) We also want to make ourselves available to our members for advice or input into knowledge and strategies to increase their business growth.

We offer benefits such as logo creation, or advertisement and PR opportunities with our media partner Maricopa Lifestyle Magazine (at no extra charge.)

We advertise and promote on a monthly basis to ensure that potential consumers know who our members are and what they offer. The BMCC sponsors quarterly financial literacy workshops to increase our members' knowledge base and to increase their chances of success. Our members are our priority.

We are available 24/7 to assist our members with whatever they need. Our workshops serve as an opportunity to bond and to make contacts. We also sponsor an End -of -the- year Gala as a thank you to the people who thought enough of us to join our organization. We want our group to be one cohesive, happy family......
