• Groups: Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)

  • Welcome to the newest OPRF Chamber Affinity Group, launched in February of 2022! Specifically intended for BIPOC business owners in our community, this group will focus on providing valuable resources for our BIPOC community, sharing experiences with other like-minded people, and supporting all that you do to be successful! 

  • When Does this Group Meet?

    REGULAR SCHEDULE

    This group meets once a month, on the 4th Monday from 5:30 - 7 pm.
     

    Where Does this Group Meet?

     

    COVID-19 UPDATE - As of January 2022 - Although we intend for this Affinity Group to be meeting in person, we know that we have to remain flexible! So our "plan B" will be to move to the virtual world of Zoom if we have to. 

    Want Regular Updates?

    If you'd like to get involved and receive regular updates about this Affinity Group, please reach out to Mark Walden, our Chamber Program Manager, at mwalden@oprfchamber.org.
