Summer 2020 Virtual BizConnect Matchmaker @ Online

MBEs get your certification and other documents ready!
NMSDC is proud to present a virtual, summer BizConnect Matchmaker. Registration begins August 3, 2020 at 12 p.m. ET. The first day of virtual meetings is Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 9 a.m. Members can pre-schedule one-on-one or one-to-many appointments to connect corporations with certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs), and MBEs with other minority suppliers. 

Using compatibility scoring, not only can registrants match with MBEs offering and requesting products and services, but those interested in access to capital and partnering too!

Eligible Companies: NMSDC National/Local Corporate/Government Agency Members, Corporate Plus Members are eligible to participate complimentary as a benefit of membership, as well as NMSDC-Certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) engaging as buyers. Nonmember corporations may also participate for a fee.

Eligible MBEs: MBEs certified by NMSDC or one of its global partners (Supply Nation, CAMSC, MSDChina, SASDC, and MSDUK) can meet with member corporations. On MBE-to-MBE day, certified and/or non-certified MBEs will have the opportunity to connect. There is no fee to sign up. This is one of many benefits of being an NMSDC-certified supplier.

2020 Leadership & Advocacy Awards @ Online

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are aware of the global, national, and local health risks posed by the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Washington State. Our responsibility is, first and foremost, to support our Council Members, MBEs, and Community Partners. We have spent a significant amount of time thoughtfully assessing the current situation and have decided to postpone the 2020 Awards Luncheon currently scheduled for March 25th.
Living up to our Council purpose—helping our Members and MBEs grow, while not placing them at risk—necessitates we postpone the Awards Luncheon. The new date is October 1, 2020.
Sincerely,
Northwest Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council
__________________________________________________________________________________________________
