All NMSDC Certified MBEs attending the 2016 Annual Conference are invited to complete their MBE Profile for Business Engagement Sessions.

Business Engagement Sessions are provided to Corporate/Public Agency Members driven by matching opportunities to MBE product and/or service providers.  Upon request by Corporate and Public Agency Members, the Council will source qualified NMSDC Certified MBEs with whom to engage.  Depending on availability, we will coordinate One-on-One Engagement Sessions between qualified suppliers and buyers/decision makers during the 2016 Annual Conference.

In order to be considered for One-on-One meetings with buyers/decision makers, please complete your MBE Profile.  This profile will be used to match MBEs to Corporate/Public Agency opportunities.  One-on-One Engagement Sessions are not guaranteed.
