Non-Certification Opportunities

Even if you are a minority supplier who does not meet the requirements for certification, you can still benefit from non-certification opportunities provided by The Council. If you've already been certified by a Regional MSDC, discover the benefits of joining The Council as an Affiliate Subscriber.

Affiliate Subscription Packages

Are you already a certified supplier but looking to gain access to The Council’s exclusive, local corporate members? Consider joining The Council via an Affiliate Subscription Package. To qualify for Affiliate Subscription services, you must be a currently certified MBE within the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) network. Because your subscription’s expiration date will be tied to your home Council expiration date, you must be in valid standing with them. If you are requesting subscription services to the NYNJMSDC within 60 days of your expiration date with your home certifying Council, we recommend that you hold your request until you have recertified with them.

As a subscriber you will:

  • Receive a subscription acknowledgment letter affirming your company as a NY & NJ Council Subscriber, which entitles you to all below services
  • Obtain letters of introduction for two (2) corporate members from the NYNJMSDC president, including your capabilities statement
  • Become eligible for The Council’s financial assistance programs, which can help with factoring, financial advising, business loans, and receivables
