Inclusive Regional Economic Recovery Support for Minority Business Enterprise

Thursday, April 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm • Organized By Mountain Plains Minority Supplier Development Council
Online Event


COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on businesses across the country. Before the pandemic, MBEs faced specific challenges in contracting with Corporate America and large-scale purchasing organizations as well as gaining access to capital. The Mountain Plains Minority Supplier Development Council has worked for more than 40 years to Certify, Develop, Connect and Advocate. We want to hear from you and bring critical resources to assist your company during these trying economic times. MBEs cannot be left behind in this crisis. 

Please join Mountain Plains MSDC and share your thoughts during the Virtual MPMSDC Interactive Town Halls as we assemble the brightest minds and resources. Each session will begin with remarks from economic development and business leaders and then open up for input and questions from our MBEs. We welcome you to submit questions in advance to Belinda Hooks at or Marvin Lyman at
