When President and CEO Doris Carson Williams welcomed more than 300 guests to the African American Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Luncheon, she thanked the organization’s sponsors and partners for strengthening their avenues of contact and connection with her members.

She noted that over the last year, workshops with entities such as the Marcellus Shale Coalition, Highmark and the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh have helped her members forge new business connections in the energy, health and development sectors, and another with accountants from Ernst & Young on the Affordable Healthcare Act helped her members understand the laws coming effects on their business.

And as members’ and sponsors’ names flashed across the large screens suspended in the Omni William Penn ballroom, Williams also highlighted the result of one such partnership between the chamber’s Urban Power to Prosper program and the University of Pittsburgh’s Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
