The Atlanta Business League, along with many other key organizations, institutions and businesses, collaborate to host the Annual Congress on the State of Black Business in Metro Atlanta. The Congress is designed to discuss and make recommendations on how black businesses and consumers can effect a greater contribution to the economic impact on the metro area by increasing business with black consumers and each other.



The Atlanta Business League recognizes local Chief Executive Officers (CEO) for outstanding participation in minority vendor development and community activities. The honors we confer are based in part on the willingness of extremely busy executives to take on work vital to carrying forward the agenda of the Atlanta Business League and the business community, which is establishing and building economic equality for minority enterprises.  


Annually the Atlanta Business League publishes its list of Atlanta’s Influential Black Men during an evening reception and induction ceremony. The list reflects the names of black men in metro Atlanta communities who have reached senior level positions within their profession, are leading entrepreneurs in their industry, have proven history-making feats or have attained the ability to influence large public bodies politically and in government.


The Atlanta Business League published its inaugural list of “Atlanta’s Top 100 Black Women of Influence” in 1994. The WOV Breakfast provides an educational opportunity for individuals at all levels representing grade school to corporate America to meet and interact with women in leading positions throughout Metro Atlanta. For many it is a source of hope displaying living examples and an enlightening experience to know that opportunities avail themselves for African-American women.



The Super Tuesday Conference is a program designed to host business owners and professionals, especially women, from throughout the metro Atlanta community during its annual Super Tuesday. The Conference provides workshops for participants and recognizes African-American female business owners and professionals during the awards luncheon..

The Annual Meetings serves as a yearly recap, acknowledging the strides that the ABL and its member have created. It also recognizes African American owned businesses that have conducted continuous business for over 25 years and serves as an induction ceremony entering them into the ABL Business Hall of Fame. Additionally, this program is solidified with the address of a featured guest who challenges and inspires entrepreneurs and professionals to do even greater things.
