OAKLAND, CA, USA, June 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Business and community leaders celebrate together for the 117th Annual Meeting and Celebration. The Chamber’s Annual Meeting will be an outdoor celebratory event at Children’s Fairyland where, together with Oakland businesses, elected leaders and community members, the Oakland Chamber invites you to spend an evening with the simple goal of reconnecting and enjoying your peers. We couldn’t be more thrilled to see everyone, in-person, pay tribute to our City’s leadership and spend an incredible evening celebrating Oakland businesses – the economic engine of our community.

This year, we welcome guest speaker and New York Times Bestselling Author, Leila Mottley. Her story is so honest and profound it was immediately selected for Oprah’s Book Club, making Leila the youngest author to be on such an esteemed list. In the book, she shares a story about a woman named Kiara Johnson, and her experiences growing up in Oakland where black young adults experience joy, confusion, hope, and fear. The first 175 guests in attendance will receive a copy of Nightcrawling thanks to the Nation’s oldest Black bookstore, Marcus Books.

Tickets for the event are still available at OaklandChamber.com. Media welcome.
