Greetings to all!

 It is my distinct privilege to assume the role of President for the NBMBAA - STL Chapter.

Like many organizations, the Covid-19 pandemic really affected the momentum of this team. As the world continues to re-open, we are more committed than ever to continue the mission and spirit of this wonderful organization. It is my commitment to continue to lead this chapter on the successful course it has been on for over 30 years. We are in a re building phase right now and my goal for this fiscal year is to present professionals with events and program that are focused around our 5 pillars; education, career, entrepreneurship, leadership, and lifestyle. While focusing on enhancing our marketing and membership recruitment/retention efforts. In addition, we are looking for new leadership, directors, mentors, and volunteers.

With your support, we will continue to foster the growth of the NBMBAA St Louis Chapter.  It is your commitment and dedication to this chapter and organization that allows us to continue to be an organization that leads in the creation of economic and intellectual wealth and the organization of choice for the African American St Louis professional. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available for all of our meetings, events, Leaders of Tomorrow and Scholarship Programs please contact any member of our leadership team if you would like to become a proud sponsor of the NBMBAA St. Louis Chapter!

On behalf of the St Louis Chapter, I would like to welcome you to the National Black MBA-St. Louis Chapter!

Thank you!


The National Black MBA Association leads in the creation of educational opportunities and economic growth for African Americans.
