Join business and community leaders at the Presidents’ Council conference

The Presidents’ Council Business Conference on August 21-22 is presented in collaboration with Downtown Cleveland Alliance and the Commission on Economic Inclusion.
It is a unique opportunity to directly engage with those who share in The Presidents’ Council mission of closing gaps that negatively impact minority communities; have a shared passion for, and understanding of, the issues and needs of African American business owners; and actively seek progress in removing barriers linked to those challenges.

The conference program on August 22 features keynote speakers Susan L. Taylor, editor-in-chief emerita of Essence magazine, and David E. Gilbert, president and CEO of Destination Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission.

It also will include panel discussions led by regional business and community leaders on these topics:

  • Innovations and How to Protect Them
  • Access to Capital: Everyone Needs It, How Do You Get It?
  • Risk Management and Succession Planning
  • Expanding Your Business in Today’s Political and Economic Climate

There will be a kick-off golf outing on Monday, August 21 at Canterbury Golf Course followed by a welcome reception in the evening. Click for more information.
