Light of Gold PR Founder Dixon Inducted Into the NY African American Chamber of Commerce as VP of PR and Marketing

Marketing, Branding Strategist, and Public Relations veteran, Debra Dixon gets inducted into the New York African American Chamber of Commerce (NYAACC) as VP of PR and Marketing on February 1. Dixon was recently named the Vice President of PR and Marketing for the Chamber and thus has planned promotions and marketing strategies and initiatives, leading up to the ‘Inaugural 100’ celebration of the NYAACC’s first 100 members. The NY African American Chamber of Commerce launch event will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel is located at 569 Lexington Avenue (between E. 50th and 51st Streets), New York, NY 10022 from 6-9 pm.

What began as a Meetup group, has grown into the formation of the Chamber. "I’m honored to be a part of a Chamber that’s going to be implementing initiatives for success for minority-owned businesses, particularly African American businesses." "What a wonderful way to start off Black History Month", said Dixon. As an active member of numerous NYC business organizations – including the Brooklyn Chamber and The Greater New York Chamber – this project is particularly meaningful to Dixon.

As the President and CEO of Light of Gold PR, Marketing, and Consulting, Dixon and her 7 person team are in the business of brand management, marketing, PR, and consulting for small businesses and non-profits on how to differentiate themselves and break through the clutter. "We expose the hidden treasures that exist in your organization, and bring these treasures to light through publicity, branding, marketing, promotions, media relations, and today’s digital technologies."
