NOVEMBER: A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL

Terrence Clark

We are continuing our efforts to provide relevant programming and events that will benefit your business and supplier diversity program. Our 6th Annual Sustainability Symposium sponsored by Citi in October provided timely information on the importance of sustainability in the supply chain and in business operations.   We also held a webinar on Supplier Diversity for our corporate members during which we shared information on current global supplier diversity initiatives. For those who attended the NMSDC Conference in Chicago, you had the opportunity to develop new business relationships and renew existing ones.

The Council is looking forward to your attendance at the 43rd Annual Partnership Awards Gala on Thursday, November 3rd at Cipriani in midtown Manhattan. The Gala celebrates the accomplishments of our corporate Members and MBEs in the advancement of minority business development and supplier diversity.  Come and celebrate these achievements and network with our corporate members and MBEs.

As we move further into the fall, the Council will continue to bring you programs and events that enhance your operations — one of which will be our upcoming mentorship program in partnership with the Columbia University School of Business. Information regarding this and other programs and events can be found on our website, www.nynjmsdc.org

Thank you for your continued support and participation in Council activities, and we wish you all the best for the upcoming holiday season.

Terrence Clark, President & CEO
