PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Do you want to protect your small business from the COVID-19 and any other future pandemics? Read below to learn about available federal funding and advocacy resources for your small business.

On behalf of the Executive Board of the U.S Minority Chamber of Commerce, we want to send a, “Get well soon,” wish for all the families around our Nation, suffering through the collateral effects of the Coronavirus. At the Chamber, we guide your businesses and services into the era of digital and remote work. Quarantine and social distancing around the United States have helped keep communities healthy but family-owned, small businesses and medium size companies supporting America’s economy require unprecedented community support. Small businesses are the lifeblood of the U.S. economy: they create two-thirds of net new jobs and drive U.S. innovation and competitiveness. A new report shows that they account for 44 percent of U.S. economic activity. We want to support, strengthen and stabilize that large percentage of businesses that keep a nice roof over millions of families, music lessons ongoing for children, ballet classes going for a little girl and soccer practice for a young boy.

In our contribution to keep our communities, neighbors and family members healthy, the Chamber’s offices in Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, New York, Los Angeles and Miami are working 100% online, ready to help you strengthen and stabilize your business. We are also calling President Donald Trump and members of Congress, to not just fund large Corporations, we ask for our leaders to remember to care about minority micro-small-medium size companies and ensure a small enterprise, government-backed loan, so all of the small businesses in our community,  cannot just get “through” this pandemic, but stabilize enough so all small businesses can rise victoriously with greater hopes and resolve than ever before.

If you want to share how your business is overcoming this economic hump, drop us a note. The best stories of hope and resilience will be shared in our upcoming quarterly magazine. If you want to learn how we are migrating the Chamber to 100% remote work, call us. Don’t get left out, purchase a membership and join one of America’s most powerful chamber of commerce, powered by the people who make the American dream of sustainable prosperity and health a reality for the future of our economy. Count on me, on our members and the Chamber to help you through.

I look forward to staying in touch, we are all stronger working in community, together.

Sincerely yours,

Doug Mayorga
