Since its inception in 1974, the Rocky Mountain MSDC has helped diversity businesses and corporations develop lasting and mutually beneficial business relationships. Following are first-hand accounts from some of our Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and corporate members on how they have benefited from membership in the Rocky Mountain MSDC.
I have been an MBE of RMMSDC for 10 years and have benefited from the organization in many ways—particularly from the opportunities RMMSDC has given me to meet the decision makers of corporate America. Over the years, I’ve had many personal introductions and have established great working relationships with the corporate members of RMMSDC. I also am an active participant in the Council and serve in many capacities within the organization. In addition, I have met outstanding MBE owners who are also community and civil leaders. The RMMSDC is a great organization with outstanding people. This is truly an organization that I recommend highly to any minority-owned business.

The Rocky Mountain MSDC is an open gateway for those minority businesses interested in connecting with corporate America. It has provided Townsend Management with un-parallel access to Corporations for almost 20 years. However, one reaps what is sown. Enthusiastic participation in The Council events provides visibility and fosters productive relationships between MBEs and Corporations.
