Out-of-state MBEs: Subscribe to the Michigan Council

 Become a subscriber to the MMSDC for enhanced MBE services in Michigan.

All certified MBEs within NMSDC’s national network have access to subscription services (formerly referred to as “reciprocal status”) from those regional councils outside of their local home council. A subscription entitles a certified MBE to receive access to regional products or services from outside of their home territory, which usually consist of local events, training, etc.

The Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC) offers subscription services to any MBE certified by one of our affiliated NMSDC councils, for a nominal annual fee.

Eligibility for subscription services

In order to qualify for subscription services, your company must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be an actively certified MBE within the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) network
  • Must be in good financial standing with your home council
  • Must be more than 60 days away from your home council certification expiration date when applying for subscription services

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, 2016 until January 30, 2017, then the subscription expiration date with MMSDC will expire on the same date as the HMSDC certificate — January 30, 2017.

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 60 days of their certification expiring at their home affiliate council will be asked to withhold their request until re-certification with their home affiliate council is completed.
