Why join a HMSDC committee?

What’s in it for me?…Plenty!

The Houston Minority Supplier Development Council’s (HMSDC) committees represent, involve and serve its Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) as well as its corporate members. They provide an important training ground for future business leaders and assist in providing the direction of HMSDC. Committees are a very effective workforce for the Council. They ensure group participation in problem solving and provide a solution to the needs of its corporate members and certified MBEs.

Are you getting the most out of your HMSDC certification? Are you sure? If you have not joined a committee yet, then the answer is probably NO! Joining a committee is truly an investment in your company’s future.

Take a moment to review the purpose of each of HMSDC’s standing committees and join the one that best fits your needs. Join two; it’s perfectly okay. Unless otherwise informed, each committee meets in the HMSDC Conference Room, Three Riverway, Suite 555, Houston, TX 77056.
