Andrews was presented with a certificate in conjunction with being named this year’s small business champion.

“We see ourselves in the business of making our service territories in the region sustainable for the African-American community. Business growth, job creation, private sector opportunities and government contracting opportunities will slow down the rate of African-Americans relocating to other parts of the county.” Phil Andrews, President, Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

Deon Brown – Chair of Membership LIAACC

“As membership chair of the largest African American Chamber in New York State I would like to thank all the members of the chamber which include Founders, Officers, Board of Directors and the entire membership of the chamber.  We would also like to thank our stakeholders such as Corporate Partners, Civic Groups, Non-Profits, Elected Officials and Government Entities who have contributed to the chamber’s mission throughout its phases of growth in the New York region. Small Business owners are encouraged to join this dynamic chamber of commerce which is poised for significant growth now and into the future.” Deon Brown, Chair of Membership Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.
