“Over the last five decades, NMSDC has made unprecedented strides, building a membership of over 1,500 corporate leaders, certifying over 15,000 MBEs, and helping them grow their annual economic output to $400 billion, said NMSDC President and CEO Ying McGuire.

“However, this year’s conference is not just about reflecting on this past. Instead, we need to harness the momentum of the last 50 years to propel us forward on our march towards $1 trillion in annual revenue for certified MBEs. Join us as we take the next leap forward in New Orleans this Fall,” she added.
