Words of Welcome

Robin L. Douglas - President/CEO/Founder, African American Chamber of Commerce of Westchester and Rockland Counties, Inc.

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the pages of Entergrate magazine, a newly-launched business diversity publication planned as a quarterly custom publication. We are issuing a call to Fortune 500 companies, high growth industry organizations, government agencies, associations and other non-profit organizations to share success stories about contracting with minority and women-owned businesses.

The magazine is the first of its kind, almost exclusively devoted to sharing best practices in minority and women business enterprise procurement, is a venture of the African American Chamber of Commerce of Westchester and Rockland Counties with underwriting from Entergy Nuclear Northeast. The publication is designed to appeal to those with procurement authority in organizations across sectors offering insight on how to benefit from doing business with minority contractors.

The magazine will also serve as a resource for small businesses seeking procurement opportunities with larger organizations in Westchester and the surrounding areas. It will specifically cover best practices in areas that include financial, marketing, real estate, insurance health, procurement development, technology, politics and law to name a few topics.

Entergrate magazine could not have been possible without the hard work of local business and community leaders like Miguel Blanco, Ken Theobalds, Laurence Gottlieb, Melvin A. Burrus, Richard Cacciato, Karen Croke, Deborah A. Fay, Ale Frederico, Douglas Freeman, Al Gutierrez, Dr. Fletcher Jones, Maj Keecia A. Jones, Monica Jones, Carole Lakin, Patricia Mulqueen, Lois Lane, Francis Savage, Patricia L. Terry, John Tuller, Debra J. White, Lyndon D. Williams, Esq..

As you peruse the informative pages of Entergrate, I would suggest that you use the magazine as a recourse guide for benchmarking the progress of local political leaders during the 05 election season. As stated by US Secretary of Commerce Evans, "It is not the responsibility of government to make its citizens rich—it is the responsibility of government to create an environment for wealth to be attained by all it citizens." As savvy M/WBEs, we don t have the luxury of selecting a candidate based on tradition and emotion. We must ask the hard questions, expect an answer and make our election decision based on the deliverables.

I hope you enjoy Entergrate magazine and look forward to your contribution and comment.

Sincerely,

Robin L. Douglas President/CEO/Founder African American Chamber of Commerce of Westchester and Rockland Counties, Inc.
