Washington, DC -- The American Association of Blacks in Energy® (Association) today announced the agenda for the 3rd annual Energy Entrepreneurs Forum on May 20, 2010 in Columbus, Ohio. The Forum which is the premier energy entrepreneur event provides information and access to those who are interested in growing their business in the energy sector or transitioning their business to take advantage of the renewed focus on energy.

The forum will be an interactive educational conference which will provide participants information on securing capital, learn how businesses can capitalize on the stimulus windfall, and growth opportunities in the energy space. Speakers at the forum include Dennis Hinson, National Director, Minority Business Development Administration, United States Department of Commerce and Mr. Reggie Spiller, Senior Vice President, CAMAC International Corporation, the 2nd largest African American business in the nation.

"Today, more and more opportunities for minority entrepreneurs have become available," said Frank Stewart, President and COO of the association. "This forum allows us to expose minority businesses to these opportunities so that they are full participants in our country's green economy."
