GA Hosts Minority Business Summit

ATLANTA - Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council (GMSDC) will host its inaugural Minority Business Summit: ‘State of Minority Business: A National Discussion’ on March 16, 2011 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, GA. The Summit will begin a two-day event hosted by GMSDC which includes the 2011 ‘Expand Your Reach’ Business Opportunity Conference & Expo (BOE) following the Summit on March 17.
“The Minority Summit is another first in the history of GMSDC,” said Stacey J. Key, president and CEO of GMSDC, who along corporate purchasing officers, supplier diversity professionals, community leaders and ethnic minority businesses will gather to exchange ideas and dialogue on issues impacting the growth and development of minority businesses.
The goal of the Summit is to create a blueprint for further dialogue and actionable steps for minority business, corporate partners and the government sector. The outcomes of this inaugural Summit will serve as a catalyst for the next wave of economic growth. GMSDC will partner with its sister councils all across the nation to confront issues facing small businesses and remove barriers for success. No topic is off-limits on March 16, no matter how controversial or challenging the solution. A team of experts will produce a ‘State of Minority Business Report’ that will formulate an action plan for real growth in 2011.
Following the Summit, the annual GMSDC Business Opportunity Conference & Expo (BOE) will open as part-two of the event. The BOE will features an exhilarating line-up of activities including one of the largest expo/trade fairs of its kind, enriching seminars and workshops, a keynote luncheon address, and virtual and ‘face-to-face’ matchmaking interviews with corporate purchasing professionals.
“GMSDC is proud to offer such programs as a means to ensuring that constituents are equipped with knowledge, resources and opportunities for expanding their reach and thereby expanding their bottom-line,” said Ken Huff, GMSDC Chairman of the board and Supplier Diversity Director for Georgia Power, A Southern Company, title Sponsor for the event.
