SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

For 45 years, the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council (D/FW MSDC) has been the gold standard in the certification of  Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American business enterprises in North Texas. Our process ensures members have access to minority-owned business enterprises (MBEs) that can impact their supply chain while also impacting the communities in which we live and work.
We are a leader in certifying, connecting, developing and advocating on behalf of minority business inclusion. During our 45th year anniversary, your organization has the opportunity to support, participate and be recognized as a Champion of Minority Business Inclusion.
This Sponsorship Opportunities Package allows you to direct your sponsorship in a manner that benefits exposure and connections for your Buying Entity. It is our intent to provide the opportunity to take full advantage of savings off the listed price, as well. A full explanation of each event and associated pricing is included in the package.
(Check with the Council on pricing. Prices listed are for those organizations that paid their dues and sponsorship by February 28, 2018).
