Mid-South Minority Business Council Continuum

The Mid-South Minority Business Council Continuum (The MMBC Continuum) was established as a part of the Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce in 1973. In 1988, GOALS for Memphis, a think tank of Memphis executives, identified four strategic priorities for the future of Memphis. Minority economic development was one of those priorities. This renewed emphasis on minority development spurred resurgence in the Memphis Regional Purchasing Council, and in 1989, it became a self-sufficient free standing organization with an independent Board of Directors comprised of senior executives of member corporations.
