History - Tampa Bay Florida Chapter
The Tampa Bay Chapter contributes its success to delivering programs that touch upon the 5 main channels for the National Black MBA Association; Education, Entrepreneurship, Career, Leadership and Lifestyle. The Chapter has done this by implementing bi-monthly "learnshops"; where members are able to obtain information on a variety of topics; such as writing a business plan, marketing the business, minority certifications, branding and many more. Through the executives board’s community presence, distinguished speakers have shared their knowledge and experience with the chapter. These speakers have included executives of Fortune 500 companies, leading black entrepreneurs, and local business professionals recognized in widely read publications such as Black Enterprise Magazine.
