A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT
On behalf of the New York & New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council, thank you for attending our 42nd Partnership Gala on November 13th. Top New York and New Jersey Fortune 500 Corporations and minority business owners were recognized for contributing to the growth and development of minority businesses. More than 500 people attended this year’s event, which provided an opportunity for networking, developing new business relationships and renewing old ones. We thank our corporate and MBE sponsors that helped make the evening possible and successful.
Over the course of 2015, The Council developed new programs that enhanced access to capital opportunities, provided business management and development information, expanded its services and information to corporate members, and held several industry-specific events that accelerated the connection between certified MBEs and corporate members. We look forward to providing more topical information in 2016 that will lead to the continued growth of certified minority businesses and the supplier diversity programs of our corporate members and partners.
Thank you for your continued support of The Council. We wish you all the best in the coming holiday season and New Year and look forward to strengthening our partnerships in 2016.
