Elevate Conference

Connecting The Black Business Community

April 5-6, 2019

BBSA Alumni Gala


Join us for an evening of fellowship with the BBSA Community!

The 2019 Alumni Gala will include an evening meal, open bar (beer and wine), music, dancing and more.

Come celebrate with us as we reconnect with members of the Black Business Student Association community, past and present, and celebrate our collective accomplishments.

In an effort to recognize alumni that continue to go above and beyond in service to our community, we will be honoring two individuals for their continued commitment to the BBSA at large. Please help us acknowledge these individuals by nominating them using this link

We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you soon!
