SRMSDC provides the only nationally recognized ethnic minority business certification (MBE) in the States of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. SRMSDC connects certified MBEs with corporate members representing many of America's largest publicly and privately owned companies.

The Southern Region Minority Supplier Development Council (formerly the Louisiana Minority Supplier Development Council) was founded in 1973 to assist major corporations with developing, enhancing and expanding minority vendor programs by integrating minority business enterprises (MBEs) into the corporate purchasing mainstream.
SRMSDC serves the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. SRMSDC is one of 23 regional affiliates with the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). This network serves to promote procurement opportunities among the Council's minority suppliers and nurture relationships between buyers and sellers that increase the number of minority firms actively engaged in corporate supply chains.
The primary objective of SRMSDC is to certify and develop minority suppliers interested in engaging with the business purchasing community. SRMSDC annually hosts the Gateway Business Connections Conference and Expo, the region's premier conference on supplier diversity. This two-day conference is the region's largest in-person exchange between corporate buyers and MBEs.
The SRMSDC Board of Directors and staff are committed to fulfilling the responsibilities of providing opportunities for minority business enterprises and to establishing mutually beneficial relationships with corporate buyers.
