Dear Members and Friends:
During May, AMAC joins the national celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Please join us as we honor the culture, traditions and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders by following us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Additionally, National Small Business Week is May 5-11. Small business owners are the backbone that fuel our economy and best represent the nation's 30 million small businesses. Did you know more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year? Do keep this in mind as minority and women-owned businesses remain an undeserved yet critical engine for economic growth and job creation.
I encourage you to meet with local entrepreneurs, visit small businesses and hold round-table discussions with leaders in your community. We applaud your commitment to these businesses that create 21st century jobs, drive innovation and increase our global competitiveness.
