Tara is directly responsible for the creation of over 37 new jobs at the Fresno Metro Black Chamber. With this kind of growth, is it any wonder that the chapter has continued to see unparalleled success at bringing in new members.

Gray added, “We are stronger together with a community of aligned and focused business leaders all working towards growth in the same direction.”
A Prestigious Reward
The CalEPA has recognized the service and the excellence of many of its communities all over the state of California and this is because they have seen the way that the Fresno Metro Black Chamber has worked to make an investment in reaching out to the entire community. The program has been in place since 2002 and has given out 2.8 million to communities all over the state.
Gray has worked tirelessly since joining as the President and CEO of the Chamber to come up with new ways to reach out to the community and to ensure that the chamber is coming up with ways to serve. The list of accomplishments which led to Fresno Metro Black Chamber being recognized for this award is quite long.
