Subscription to MBE Services

The Northwest Mountain MSDC offers subscription services to any minority business enterprise (MBE) that has been certified by one of our affiliated NMSDC councils, for a nominal annual fee. A subscription entitles the certified MBE to receive access to Northwest Mountain MSDC services regardless of the MBE’s physical location.

Subscription services are valuable for MBEs who wish to have access to the unique relationships, capabilities, and industry expertise the Northwest Mountain MSDC has cultivated in our service area.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to subscribe toNorthwest Mountain MSDC's MBE Services, your business must meet the following requirements

  • The business is a certified MBE within the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) network.
  • You must be in good financial standing with your home council at the time of the subscription service request.
  • We must receive your application for subscription services at least 60 days prior to the expiration date of your MBE certification with your home council.

Both current and historical facts are considered in determining ownership qualifications and participation in the management and operations of the company.

Length of Subscription

A subscription service runs concurrently with the term of your MBE certification from your home council. The subscription expiration date will be the same as your home council certification expiration date.

For example, if Company X is certified in Houston with Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) from January 30, 2014 until January 30, 2015, then the subscription expiration date in X with Northwest Mountain MSDC will expire on the same date as the HMSDC certificate on January 30, 2015.

We welcome all certified MBEs to subscribe to our services at any time. However, any certified MBE requesting subscription services within 60 days of their certification expiration at their home affiliate council will be asked to withhold their request until re-certification with their home affiliate council is completed.
