Gala Highlights

The 20th Year Anniversary Gala for the African American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cincinnati | Northern Kentucky was held on Saturday, May 20, 2017, at the Sharonville Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The nearly 700 guests who help celebrate the Chamber partook in networking opportunities, complimentary photo booth pictures and were treated to dinner, live entertainment and dancing.

As the hallmark event of the year for the Chamber, this sold out evening can be attributed to the anniversary's theme, "Honoring the Past to Secure Our Future", which honored the Chamber's Past Presidents and the 2017 Black Business Hall of Fame Inductees.  In addition, the Chamber was presented proclamations from the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County and the State of Ohio.  To culminate the evening, the City of Cincinnati presented a proclamation to Mr. James Clingman, the Chamber's founding member and first president.

WE THANK OUR SPONSORS FOR THEIR GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT OF THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY GALA.
