Maintaining the safety of our OMSDC network is our utmost priority. Currently, OMSDC is closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and its progression. In the spirit of safety, OMSDC will take extra precautions to reduce exposure of our employees and members to COVID-19 by utilizing virtual technology for meetings and working remotely as needed.
On Thursday, March 12th, Governor DeWine banned events of more than 100 attendees. In addition, many of our valued partners already have travel bans or travel restrictions in effect for employee safety. As a result, several meetings and conferences have been postponed.
It is in this spirit that we have decided to postpone the Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for March 25th at Central State University. We are confirming with the venue and our speakers for a new date in early August, so please watch out for emails and check our website.
Note that these OMSDC Conferences and events are still on schedule:
- Business Opportunity Expo (BOE), June 2nd – 3rd
- Supplier Diversity Exchange, September 17th ·
- Annual Awards Gala, November 20th
Please use reliable information and your best judgment for all interactions. For your convenience, the OMSDC team is available to serve our corporate members and MBEs. Thank you for your patience and consideration as we evaluate our next steps.
With appreciation for each of you and well wishes for continued health and safety,
Jacqueline D. NealPresident & CEO Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council
