As a member, you’ll have access to the MSDC database of thousands of certified minority business enterprises. We verify ownership, operation, and control of each business and renew certifications annually to ensure everything is up to date — and that our suppliers meet your compliance standards.
Active participation in The Council will highlight your company as one that is respected and socially responsible. Your commitment to the success of diverse suppliers increases wealth in diverse communities across our region, which in turn enhances the economy so that all businesses can grow.
If you don’t have a fully developed supplier diversity program, we can help. The Council assists members in creating their own diverse supplier events and opportunities. In addition, we recognize our partners and sponsors, providing the perfect opportunity for you to acknowledge the hard work of your supplier management team.
Membership is available to any person, firms, or corporations which purchase goods and services from minority businesses. Corporate members must designate, in writing, a representative who will act for and on behalf of the entity in connection with the affairs of The Council.

- Attend The Council’s membership meetings
