For more than four decades, NMSDC’s commitment to meeting the procurement needs of Fortune 500 companies, universities, hospitals, and government organizations has changed the perception of minority suppliers. As a result, minority business is no longer synonymous with small business.

We’re grateful to our Board of Directors and committee members for leading the way.
