Message from Regina A. Hairston, AACC President & CEO:

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Tiffany Gilbert, AACC Office Manager and Community Liaison. Tiffany had been a valuable member of our AACC family since January 2019 and served the members and community passionately until she was no longer able to do so. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time.

While I did not have the opportunity to know Tiffany long, I immediately saw her deep commitment to our members and her desire to help me settle in seamlessly. Whether it was leading the website redesign or acquainting me with members, I could always depend on Tiffany.

Information on her services and where to send condolences, will be made available upon receipt. Please do not hesitate to call, should you wish to recount a fond memory or to share your thoughts.

I hope you find comfort in reading the tributes below in Tiffany’s memory. Please add any that you would like to share in the comments below.


“I am extremely heartbroken to learn of Tiffany’s passing. Shortly after she began working at the AACC last year, we quickly became friends. Her passion and commitment for not only supporting Black-owned businesses, but Black people overall, was inspiring to the AACC staff and even members that Tiffany connected with. She would always go above and beyond and gave 110% to anything that she did. She was kind. She was empathetic. She was courageous. And she will truly be missed.” ~ Barry Johnson, Former AACC Communications & Membership Engagement Specialist

“Tiffany was a servant of and advocate for the community. A passionate professional that put others first. Woman of amazing integrity and conviction dedicated to fighting for businesses. She will be sorely missed!” ~ Donavon West, Former AACC President
