Dear Robbie:

Thank you for hosting the Black Business Association (BBA) Board of Director’s Installation banquet yesterday evening.  Robbie you were such an excellent producer that my wife and I were each overwhelmed with your charismatic hosting style and celebratory presentation for the BBA members.  Everyone at my table shared similar comments in their respective appreciation for Honda extending its resources to host such a noble affair.

I formally wish to express my sincere appreciation to you for taking the initiative to make this program a success.  I wish you and the entire American Honda Motor Company management the best on its small business program.  There is no doubt that future networking events like the one you conducted will surely help maximize the potential progress of supplier diversity.

Yours truly,

Dean L. Jones
Executive Director
