LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dominique Milton, President & CEO
RE: CVMSDC is Committed to You
Dear Colleagues and Friends:
At such a time as this… I want you our MBEs and Corporate Partners to know that our entire CVMSDC and NMSDC affiliate network is working to provide resources so that we can survive as a community. I have been in touch with our legislators and community partners to strategize on solutions.
We know that small businesses – and in particular, minority businesses – will be impacted economically the hardest due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As a result, we all need to be very intentional in our communication, act with a sense of purpose, and develop a crisis plan that includes post-crisis and recovery efforts. Click Here To Read More
WELCOME TO THE CVMSDC
Our Business is: Innovation, Elevation, and Transformation
Welcome to the Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council! CVMSDC is a non-profit corporation chartered to enhance business opportunities for minority-owned companies by providing support through developing mutually beneficial networking opportunities with corporate members and promoting minority business development. Within business and industry, Supplier Development refers to the process of connecting minority businesses that provide goods and services to corporations for the purpose of enhancing and supporting manufacturing, development, and product delivery into the marketplace.
As a pro-business and development advocacy organization, our business is Innovation, Elevation, and Transformation. Innovation is the process of advancing ideas, methods, products, services, and solutions. Elevation is promoting and uplifting individuals, groups, organizations, and business entities. Transformation is facilitating a change in form, appearance, or process. Through the work of CVMSDC, Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Corporate Members are brought together for the mutual benefit of advancing and innovating Supplier Development ideals in the marketplace, elevating minority business participation levels, and transforming the economic landscape from the status quo to foster economic development and wealth creation within the CVMSDC network.
