A subscription is an agreement to receive or be given access to affiliate products or services, such as:

  • Access to top corporate purchasing agents
  • Premium business connection outings and networking events
  • Regional or industry-specific newsletters
  • Introductions to national corporate members
  • Specialized procurement conferences and trade fairs
  • Supplier Diversity Summits and round table discussions
  • Professional development fellowships
  • Mentor-Protege pairings and other educational or development programs
  • Access to relevant technical and financial assistance

Each affiliate council will have a set of subscription services to offer certified MBEs that choose to do business in another service area.  The services will be accessed using the affiliate council website or existing AP, as either a bundle of services or on a pay-as-you-go basis.  Some services will be specific to a dominant industry or technology support.

The subscription service period for the certified MBE will be equivalent to the certification period it has with its home certifying RMSDC.  For example, if Company X is certified in Georgia with GMSDC from January 30, 2014, until January 30, 2015, then the subscription expiration date in Houston with HMSDC should also expire on the same date as the GMSDC certificate -- January 30, 2015.

What is the value of Subscription Services?
Comparatively, the individual cost of the subscription services is more than $3,000 a year.

Why should I purchase Subscription Services?
Cost savings as opposed to purchases the services mentioned above individually. 

How do I purchase Subscription Services?
Annual Fees for Premium Subscription Services are $400.00.  

*All MBE Plus Sponsors will be automatically enrolled in Premium Subscription Services
