Pillars of Service
BCAZ’s Pillars of Service
Here’s how we do it
The Black Chamber of Arizona (BCAZ) is focused on facilitating the economic growth of the greater Phoenix business community by providing access to business resources and opportunities that add value. And we take our job seriously.
The BCAZ fights for legislation that promotes small business growth, particularly policies that address the challenges of Black business owners. We understand the importance of maintaining a bipartisan approach to advocacy, and hence, collaborate with policy makers from all political affiliations to advocate for policies that best serve the interest of the Black community.
The growth and development of Black chamber members, businesses and individuals is a core focus of the BCAZ. As such, we leverage our role as a regional organization, provide technical assistance and leadership training to members, and facilitate the sharing of best practices and industry data among our members. To do this, we utilize a variety of mechanisms including, training, web-based tools, peer networking, coaching, and information products. Our Leadership Summit is a one day conference focusing on educating small business owners on how to become business ready; corporate employees on how to leverage one’s skills to climb the corporate ladder; developing mentorships with those under and over 40 in preparation to pass the torch; informing everyone about the latest public policy issues facing the valley and state; and most importantly presenting new business and investment opportunities to take advantage of.
The BCAZ is committed to helping Black business leaders achieve stellar performance and growth through entrepreneur and business management training. Hence, we deliver quality educational opportunities and professional development resources that help our members manage and grow successful businesses.
