DALLAS-The oldest and largest Black Chamber of Commerce in the nation, the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce (DBCC), recently held a PowerNetworking Meet & Greet Reception recently at the Dallas Black Dance Theatre for the upcoming PowerNetworking Conference.
The reception was a promotional event to kick-off plans for Black America’s largest power networking conference, the 2012 FraserNet PowerNetworking Conference (PNC), which will be held in Dallas for the first time June 28-30, 2012 at the Hotel InterContinental. The theme for this year’s conference is: Think Globally, Act Locally: Building Amazing Businesses, Careers and Communities in the 21st Century.
Nearly 200 people from Dallas’ business community attended the invitation-only event to help welcome the FraserNet executives to Dallas and learn more about the conference and what Dallas stands to gain from its presence. Business professionals, community leaders, elected officials and chamber executives all converged on the Dallas Black Dance Theatre to show their support for the upcoming conference.
World-renowned speaker, entrepreneur and best-selling author, George Fraser was in town for the event and spoke to the attendees about how the conference came to Dallas after being held in Atlanta for the past 3 years and how Dallas residents could benefit from attendance. When asked why move the Conference to Dallas? Fraser stated, “To more centralize the PNC to make it easier for people from both coasts to attend and to give the PNC a fresh look and feel in one of America’s great urban centers!”
DBCC 2012 Board Chair, Sonya Hoskins noted, “the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce is honored that Mr. Fraser has selected the City of Dallas to host the FraserNet PowerNetworking Conference. I strongly encourage the citizens of greater Dallas to attend the PowerNetworking Conference and receive the benefit of timely and valuable information to assist in growth and development of business in the current economic environment.”
