PRLog - Jun. 12, 2014 - ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The state Council on Black Minnesotans reaches another milestone with the 2014 Power of Unity Economic Summit under the leadership of executive director Edward McDonald and three-time elected board chairman Patwin Lawrence. “It was a great planning process. Community members volunteered to assist with the planning every step of the way. We expect a great turnout for our two-day event,” said board chairman Lawrence.

The COBM will hold the Power of Unity 2014 Economic Summit on June 27 and 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Carlson School of Management located at 321 19th Ave South on the campus of the University of Minnesota. Special parking arrangements have been made so the first 75 guests will receive free parking in the adjacent ramp on 19th Street.

“This years focus is on black business. We will have panel discussions along with Internet marketing, technology, and business-building seminars presented by the most knowledgeable people in Minnesota. The networking events are meant to put black business owners in the same room with each other,” said executive director Edward McDonald.

This years' Summit will celebrate African and African American cultural traditions, develop plans for the sustainability and growth of African and African American economic development institutions, build and enhance relationships between private business interests, and expand prosperity for Minnesotans of African Heritage. “There will also be a youth entrepreneur contest to check out up and coming youth in business,” said McDonald.

The Summit is an extension of the Council on Black Minnesotans commitment to ensuring that all people of African Heritage fully and effectively participate and benefit equitably from the political, social and economic resources, policies and procedures of the State of Minnesota since its creation in 1980.
