The Minority Business Enterprise Council (MBDC) and the Women-owned Business Enterprise Coalition (SCWBEC) programs are designed to assist the growth and development of businesses owned and controlled by women and minority groups. An important activity of the programs is to increase the participation of those businesses in the procurement activities of Suffolk County.
Networking, certification workshops and seminars on how to do business in Suffolk County are a few activities you can find on their monthly calendars. Membership is open to all Suffolk County businesses and residents. Both organizations meet monthly at the Suffolk County Office Building in Hauppauge.
