Virtual Series

ON THE MARK

"On The Mark" is a new virtual series hosted by BECMA that will feature local, state, and national policy leaders who will break down relevant legislation, policy, and other topical matters that are crucial for the growth of Black business owners and entrepreneurs. Each week, we will invite elected officials, practitioners, and others to both share insights into important resources for our community and answer questions live for the viewing audience.
