In July 2023, The Black Executive CMO Alliance gathered in The Hamptons for our July Meeting.

Members came together in historic Sag Harbor, New York to further BECA’s mission to share, learn, elevate, and pay it forward. The weekend provided opportunities for members to delve into the present and future business of BECA and share successes, all while fellowshipping together!


Members and guests assembled for brunch, which featured a dynamic presentation on the history of Sag Harbor and the Historic Black Beach Community, Azurest. Members and guests learned about the compelling stories of Azurest founders Amaza Lee Meredith and Maude Terry. The presentation was delivered by long-time residents Dale Cochran, Ambassador Susan “SuJay” Johnson, and Steven Williams (Azurest Property Owners Association President).

Member Meeting

The Member Meeting provided an opportunity for BECA Members to explore and align on ongoing and upcoming initiatives for 2023 and 2024. The meeting shone a special light on the launch of the third cohort of The BECA Playbook (Class of 2025) and the upcoming Inaugural BECA Playbook Graduation — where the Class of 2023 BECA Future Leaders are set to graduate this November! We also could not allow this moment to pass without recognizing Members for their recent promotions, role expansions, achievements, and accolades. 

Cocktail Reception & Dinner

To close out the weekend’s events, members and guests shared laughter and conversation over a delightful dinner followed by dancing! This was an unforgettable meeting with the BECA family! We thank Beam Suntory, General Motors, and FCB for their generous sponsorship of our July membership activities.
