Cleveland NEO Chapter’s website. It is an honor to serve and lead a chapter that

has worked vigorously in the creation of economic and intellectual wealth in the

African-American community for nearly 35 years.

Our chapter has continued to thrive due to a legacy of strong members, leaders

and partners. I want to thank our past and present members, leaders and

partners for their service, support and engagement.

While we treasure and celebrate our past, we are also excited about the present

and the future. I call on our current members to take a leadership role, serve on a

committee, volunteer or attend an event. The organization needs you now!

My pledge is to continue the phenomenal work that we’ve done with our current corporate and community partners as we look for new ways to embrace, interact with and elevate the communities in which we live, work and serve.

If you are a student, small business owner or a new or accomplished professional, we want to partner with you in your quest to fulfill or sustain your goals, dreams and desires. While we proudly celebrate the role of the MBA degree in our creation, an MBA degree is not required for membership, so we invite non-MBAs to join us as well!

If you are a potential corporate partner, community agent or civic leader, let’s
