To be the premier advocate for African American businesses in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.
To establish, cultivate and strengthen consumer and business relationships; provide access to major corporate markets for our members to help increase business opportunities; and assist in developing strategic partnerships and alliances for the purpose of strengthening and growing the business community.
In 1996 a group of African American business owners and citizens formed the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky African American Chamber of Commerce (AACC). Their vision and commitment to African American owned businesses has resulted in major accomplishments during its history. Today, the chamber's staff and board work to identify new market opportunities; improve access to capital and economic growth for established and emerging African -American businesses.
We are proud of the Chamber's Walnut Hills headquarters at 2945 Gilbert Avenue. The office provides a central repository of community information and resources. It is also well utilized as a site for meetings and seminars by AACC members, The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and a host of other non-profits. The leadership efforts of previous board chairs and others greatly contributed to the Chamber's current success.
