Supplier Of The Year

They're problem solvers, bringing innovative and cost-effective solutions. Nimble and flexible, they respond quickly to customer requests. They add value and get things done. These are the hallmarks of entrepreneurs at their best, and on July 18, you can meet these elite suppliers who are competing for prestigious local SCMSDC Supplier of the Year awards.

Sponsored by American Honda Motor Co. for the 29th straight year, the annual celebration recognizes top-performing minority business enterprises (MBEs) for their outstanding partnerships with corporate members.

Leadership Excellence Awards

The Leadership Excellence Awards Dinner Gala is the high point of the year. Always an elegant evening, it is the night we honor the change makers among us: in business, public office, diversity and inclusion. And we always do it in style.  The event actually encompasses two awards, the Leadership Excellence Award (LEA), and the MBE Input Committee-hosted Corporation of the Year Award (COTY).
