On May 21, 2013 the Harlem Business Alliance’s Board of Directors, members and administrative staff gathered at Sylvia’s Restaurant for the yearly General Membership Networking Meeting. This year attendees were joined by the candidates for Manhattan Borough President. Council Member Robert Jackson, District 7; Council Member Gale Brewer, 6th District; Julie Menin, former Chairperson of Community Board 1; and Council Member Jessica Lappin, 5th District introduced themselves, their backgrounds and presented their qualifications. Each candidate also discussed their plans to ensure preservation and growth of NYC’s small businesses. Bernard Warren, HBA’s Board Secretary, led the discussion.
Members also had the opportunity to network with fellow HBA members and the special invited guests. All attendees were invited to visit HBA’s new Small Business Support Center after the close of the meeting.
For those who did not receive an invitation and wish attend next year’s meeting please contact our office at (212) 665-7010 regarding membership.
