Scenes from October's
Business Opportunity Luncheon

President and CEO Stacey Key greeted guests, sharing news that construction of the BDC (Business Development Center) will begin this week.
It was a packed house at the final BOL of 2013. The more than 70 MBEs and corporate members in attendance received tips and strategies to prepare for the upcoming national NMSDC conference.
Vanessa Lane of Cox Enterprises pins Connie Watson of AusDanBrook Properties, signifying the successful completion of her Six Month Action Plan. In total, four MBEs received this important honor. 


After receiving their pins, each MBE was allowed to give an elevator pitch to the guests. Here, Chondra Webster of WEBMark Construction  took a moment to praise the GMSDC for their assistance of MBEs.
