The Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, Inc. (HCFS) will continue its annual focus on Community Economic Development and Small and Minority Business Development at its August 5, 2017 monthly Signature Roundtable and Open Forum. The breakfast forum entitled, ”Converting Opportunity to Wealth in Our Community: A Celebration of National Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week”, will be held in the Multipurpose Room of the WSB YMCA, located at 1110 May Street, at 9:30 AM.
A panel of business owners and practitioners will bring to the table an abundance of experience, ideas, do’s and don’ts, challenges and opportunities open to those with the entrepreneurial spirit. Then too, there will always be the opportunity for those in the audience to participate and offer ideas and input and pose questions for progress, as it will take the support of the entire community to advance the cause of improving the economic status of the African American community in Savannah.
The HCFS invites the general public to join us in meeting and greeting and discovering what the state of Minority-owned business is in our community. “The HCFS Board of Directors wants its members and other participants of the forums to continue to interact, generate dialogue, exchange ideas and information, and share with people who are making a difference in the Savannah community,” says Diana Harvey Johnson, President, Pinnacle Communications Corporation, consultant to the HCFS. The informal breakfast forums bring together a diverse audience of business owners, clergy, elected officials, neighbor hood leaders and community advocates to access the status and address the needs of African Americans and the entire community of the Savannah-Chatham County area.
