 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- At the fifth annual Business Opportunity Symposium Series (Boss V '92) held in Austin, Texas, Dr. Emma C. Chappell, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of United Bank of Philadelphia, was honored as National Outstanding Businesswoman of the Year.

 Chappell was invited to speak during several forums throughout the symposium, contributing her experience and expertise in the banking arena to complement other esteemed speakers. Keynoting the Business Women's Luncheon was Dr. Sybil Mobley an outstanding member of several national corporate boards. Earl Graves, publisher of Black Enterprise Magazine, highlighted the Business Awards Banquet, during which the TAMBE presented Chappell with the National Outstanding Businesswoman of the Year Award.
 In keeping with the symposium's theme, "Building Strategic Partnerships of Growth and Profit in the Nineties," Chappell affirmed her stance by emphasizing, "In today's economic climate our mission at United Bank is to firmly entrench the role of minority businesses both for long-term revitalization of our community's well being and to cultivate a nurturing environment for entrepreneurship."
 At Boss V '92 Chappell enlightened the audiences on the founding, growth and prosperity of United Bank of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's first black-owned and controlled full-service commercial bank to be chartered since 1923.
 "The bank the people built" was founded to provide quality, personalized commercial banking services to businesses and individuals in the Delaware Valley area, with special attention to Blacks, Hispanics and women. Steadfast support from the community and unbounded success has catapulted the bank into announcing a second stock offering and cementing plans for expansion.
