Dear Valued Constituent:
Welcome to our 2021 MMSDC Kick-Off Page! We are gearing up for another exciting year at MMSDC and want to thank you for your ongoing support! Not only are we surviving in 2020, but thanks to supporters like you, MMSDC continues to thrive in 2020. During these unprecedented times, our team recognized that our mission was more important than ever, so we increased our level of service and programming to meet your needs. Please see the Year in Review for some of the highlights of this unforgettable year. I’m incredibly proud of our staff, grateful for our board, and appreciative of you, our loyal constituents.
In 2021, we are excited to offer new sponsorship opportunities that include enhanced levels and benefits. We have also organized the packages into streamlined base packages for each of our Signature events, and in light of continued uncertainty, our programming in the first half of the year has been designed with a hybrid approach allowing live and/or virtual presentation. We will also continue to offer customized sponsorship opportunities based on your individual company’s needs.
Due to the unprecedented year that was 2020, all of our events required creative revision. Nonetheless, our staff worked tirelessly and put forth an innovative slate of strong programming; we look forward to bringing those best practices and lessons learned into 2021.
In addition to the return of our annual Golf Tournament and ONE MMSDC, 2021 will be the 40th year of the Michigan Minority Procurement Conference (MMPC). Likewise, the 2021 ACE Awards will take place in conjunction with the bi-annual Chairman’s Scholarship Gala – creating one big night of celebration meant to recognize the great achievements of our scholars, partners, MBEs & Corporate Members.
Lastly, we are now offering some new and exciting Sponsorship Opportunities to accompany MMSDC’s updated newsletter as we enhance our communications with new vehicles like The MMSDC Gazette. In addition to creating a more robust platform highlighting the greatness of our constituency, we are now giving you the chance to sponsor the Gazette.
If you have any questions regarding these offerings, please contact us at 313-873-3200. Keep checking this page as we will continue to update it as sponsorships are sold. Thank you again for being a valued customer of MMSDC.
