MBE Input Committee (MBEIC) Announces New Charter

The HMSDC is proud to share with its corporate members and certified MBE suppliers the charter document developed by the MBEIC Committee. This document was developed by the MBEIC in conjunction with the leadership team of HMSDC to ensure that certified MBEs of HMSDC understand the role of the MBEIC and how the Houston MBEIC will operate. Among other things, there is a NEW process to ELECT the Chair and Vice-Chair beginning in 2018! While this document could have easily been expanded to incorporate more detail, the intent was to develop a charter that would provide guidance or a road map to focus the efforts of the committee. We believe this charter accomplishes that goal and allows us to have a structural framework from which to operate that can withstand the test of time.

The major sections of the charter are as follows: (Click here to view the charter)

Capacity Building Model Certificate Program

The powerful, new online certificate program is a partnership of Rutgers University and Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC). With easy-to-use learning tools, you’ll develop a customized Capacity Building Model (CBM) program with the power to increase the strength and impact of a supplier development program. Through course assignments, you’ll build strategic alliances as you design a smart, forward-thinking supplier development program through CBM

HMSDC Economic Impact

Early in 2015 the Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) retained The Institute for Thought Diversity to assist the Council in conducting a study to assess the economic impact that HMSDC certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) have on Houston, the most populous city in the state of Texas, and the fourth most populous in the United States. This impact includes the increased business activity created by the 677 MBEs of HMSDC, the jobs that are maintained/created as a result of this activity throughout the various sectors of the state’s economy, and the incremental business taxes that are generated at the local, state and national levels.
