The Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (CACCI) continues its celebration of 30 years of service to the small business community with a special tribute to its founding members and corporate partners.
This tribute and gala dinner will be held on Thursday, July 30, at Tropical Paradise Ballroom and Banquet Hall, 1367 Utica Ave., Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn-based CACCI has grown from a virtual fledging micro-organism into a multi-dimensional institution, according Grenadian-born founder and president Dr. Roy A. Hastick, Sr.
“It is hard to believe that 30 years have past since CACCI was launched in New York State, and we are continuing to grow and expand,” he said.
Over the years, Hastick said CACCI has amassed a record of accomplishments, which includes over 800 seminars, workshops and small business clinics, trade missions to Caribbean region, monthly power breakfast meetings, and business networking meetings.
CACCI has also partnered with numerous U.S. private sector agencies and city, state and federal institutions, as well as hosting heads of state and trade delegations from Africa and the Caribbean, Hastick said.
“We say thanks to our board of directors, our network of supporters and contributors who have helped to sustain CACCI over the past 30 years, so that, today, we able to celebrate this milestone, and continue our advocacy, training and outreach services on behalf of small businesses,” he said.
“It has been well documented that CACCI has evolved into an entity, which continues to advocate on behalf of the small business community in New York, and is poised to serve as a vital link between the Caribbean region and the U.S.A.,” he added.
