To identify and increase economic development opportunity for African American and other minority groups. This mission shall also be inclusive to our military veteran population in Riverside County.
To increase the number and the success of African American and minority businesses in Riverside County, while developing a pipe-line of future entrepreneurs through better education and healthier holistic habits for better outcome.
The Riverside County Black Chamber of Commerce (RCBCC) is more than an organization for just businesses, it's an integral part of the economic development fiber of our community. When we speak of economic development we mean more then entrepreneurship. Although entrepreneurship is vital to many of our programs, we understand that the creation of jobs and the securing of these jobs is really what economic development is all about. Money has to flow into our communities for our community to truly prosper. Membership is open to all individuals, seniors and youths, organizations and groups or associations that support our mission, along with business owners.
RCBCC serves to create, identify or expand economic development opportunities for African American and minority businesses. We also provide financial tools and information for economic empowerment to both the business owner and the individual. We produce workshops, training, seminars, mixers and the distribution of pertinent information to our members in as many ways as we can. We are committed to using both traditional and innovative strategies to empower our community to overcome historical business and financial obstacles, such as access to capital, capacity building and getting our share of contacts.
The Chamber is also working to establish and insure a vital on-going community connection. Our participation, education and enrollment of those needing quality affordable health care provided by Covered California is just one part of our goal to keep our community connected. We advocate for African-American and minority owned businesses, veterans, contracts and vendors to secure lucrative business opportunities.
It is the chambers belief that "together we can do more" which is our membership represents all facets of our community.
