SCMSDC is the largest corporate membership organization in the region, with the largest number of minority businesses in the nation and the most diverse in industry and ethnicity.

The exclusive purpose of the Minority Business Opportunity Day Conference (MBOD) is to connect majority corporations and diverse businesses. Diverse companies are the fastest growing businesses in the nation.
