The Rising Tide Lifts All Boats
Business, Advocacy, Community
Welcome to the Business Leadership Council website. We invite you to browse and learn more about the mission of the organization and its members. The Business Leadership Council is a 501(c)(6) organization composed of African American business people in every sector from financial services to construction to technology. Our goal is sustained improvement to the quality of life in the African American community. We advocate to key government officials, top tier public and private corporations and government supported institutions about the importance of substantially increasing the business opportunities afforded African American business owners and corporate professionals who in turn will bring the jobs and contracts to the community.
The Business Leadership Council is building bridges in every arena to attain and maintain a strong foundation for business growth and philanthropy that produces a higher standard of living for the African American community.
As part of this vision, the Business Leadership Council also seeks to provide an environment from which the next generation of corporate, entrepreneur and political leaders can emerge.
Thank you for your interest and support.
Frank M. Clark
Chairman of the Board & President
