Speakers included:

Harry Alford, President and CEO, National Black Chamber of Commerce

Josh Ulman, Ulman Public Policy and Federal Relations
Mike Little, Chairman of the Board, National Black Chamber of Commerce
John Macklin, National Association of Minority Contractors
Michelle Bernard, CEO of the Independent Women's Forum, MSNBC Political Analyst

The National Black Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to economically empowering and sustaining African American communities through entrepreneurship and capitalistic activity within the United States and via interaction with the Black Diaspora. The NBCC reaches 100,000 Black owned businesses.
