NMSDC Leadership

For more than four decades, NMSDC’s commitment to meeting the procurement needs of Fortune 500 companies, universities, hospitals, and government organizations has changed the perception of minority suppliers. As a result, minority business is no longer synonymous with small business.

We’re grateful to our Board of Directors and committee members for leading the way.
