A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT
Summer is almost upon us, and The Council invites you to join us at two major networking events that will bring together our corporate members and certified MBEs. On Tuesday, June 7th we will host our annual Networking for Scholarships event at the Montclair Golf Club in Montclair, NJ. This event brings together our corporate members and MBEs for a relaxing day of golf and other activities that will facilitate the development of new business relationships, and enhance existing ones.
On the following day, June 8th, we will hold our Business Opportunity Expo at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. The day will begin with a presentation from Ms. Joset Wright Lacy, President of the National Minority Supplier Development Council during which she will provide information on supplier diversity and MBE business development.
The Expo will also feature workshops that will allow Corporate Members to discuss ways to enhance their supplier diversity programs, educate MBEs on techniques to help to grow their businesses, and also feature matchmaking sessions that will bring corporate members and MBEs together for new business opportunities. The Expo will also enable MBEs and Corporate members to develop or enhance business relationships at the various business booths for Corporate members and MBES as part of the afternoon’s activities. The day will conclude with a networking reception, giving all attendees the chance to meet and mingle in a relaxing atmosphere. We urge you to make every effort to attend and look forward to seeing you on June 7th and 8th.
As always, we appreciate you continued support of The Council. Have a wonderful summer.
Terrence Clark, President & CEO
