A Message from the CEO

With over 20 current reported cases of coronavirus in North Texas, the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council is implementing the following proactive measures in consideration of Council stakeholders, certified MBEs, staff and the MBDA-Dallas.

Effectively immediately, the offices of the D/FW MSDC and the MBDA-Dallas will be closed to the public. All on-site events, meetings and appointments are postponed.

Despite the disruption, our staff will still be working, and business can be conducted by phone, email and online resources.

It is our intent to continue to provide information to stakeholders in these uncertain times. We will conduct our monthly certification workshops by webinar. New and renewal certification applications can be forwarded via US mail or sent electronically.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to continuing to serve you. You can keep abreast of D/FW MSDC information and notices by visiting our website or watch for further emails direct from the Council.

Margo J. Posey
