Bi-Annual GM Leadership Development Series for MBEs & Corporate Members
Monday, March 24, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
NOTE: The MMSDC has streamlined the MBE Quarterly and the Corporate Quarterly meetings into one event, now called the GM Leadership Excellence Series. These meetings will be held bi-annually rather than quarterly, out of respect for the time constraints of our members. These events will host both MBEs and Corporate members for an afternoon of training, courtesy of our sponsor, General Motors Company.
