The Local Take: June 15 Atlanta Business League CEO Appreciation Luncheon


Saturday morning at eight, WCLK's The Local Take talks about the Atlanta Business League and the 42nd Annual CEO Appreciation Luncheon. The year's event will be virtually and take place on Tuesday, June 15th at 11:30AM.  Tiffany Callaway Ferrell, co-chair of this year's event, shares highlights.

Before we speak about the event, I ask Ms. Callaway Ferrell how members of the Atlanta Business League fared in the Pandemic. She talks about some members who used innovations for new opportunities and expansion and others whose businesses didn't survive.  She spoke about their work to assist African-American business owners with navigating the PPP loan process.

The 42nd CEO Appreciation Luncheon is a must-attend event for entrepreneurs and corporate leaders. This year's event will take place with limited participants and via a virtual platform.  She explains that anyone interested in business and leadership should plan to attend. 

Honorees for this year will include -

Mr. Ernest Greer, Co-President, Greenberg Traurig, LLP
