Length of subscription services
A subscription service runs concurrently with your home affiliate council certification. The subscription expiration date will be the same as your home council certification expiration date. For example, if Company X is certified in Houston with Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) from January 30, 2021 until January 30, 2022, then the subscription expiration date with MMSDC will expire on the same date as the HMSDC certificate – January 30, 2022.
Timing rules for subscriptions
We welcome all certified MBEs to subscribe to our services at any time. However, any certified MBE requesting subscription services within 90 days of their certification expiring will be asked to withhold their request until re-certification with their home council is completed.
