The Next Level - "Matching Opportunities and Closing Transactions"
MWSDBE Recognition Week
Greater Houston Business Procurement Forum (GHBPF) was established in 1991 and is celebrating its 27th Anniversary.  The event is designed to recognize and promote outstanding achievements of minority and small businesses based on the challenges those businesses have overcome, total revenues, jobs created and economic impact the businesses have brought to the community as well as individuals and organizations that have demonstrated leadership and commitment to the advancement of the minority and small business community.  Of equal importance, we will be awarding Scholarships to deserving Houston Community College Business Students for their Academic and Community Accomplishments.
 
The Mission of the Greater Houston Business Procurement Forum is to be a world class forum uniquely designed to provide advocates an opportunity to promote and enhance the success of "Economically and Socially Disadvantaged Businesses."  The goal is to bring together public and private sector officials, corporate and government administrators, political leaders, knowledgeable business leaders and entrepreneurs to share information on key business issues and create, execute and deliver business opportunities that "Make a Positive Difference" in the communities we live and serve.
 
The event will be celebrated on December 11, 2018 and is locally Hosted by:  Greater Houston Business Procurement Forum along with such Strategic and Community Partners as Asian Chamber of Commerce, City of Houston Office of Business Opportunity, City of Houston Housing and Community Development, City of Houston Public Works, Constant Contact, D-MARS, East End Chamber of Commerce, Fort Bend Independent School District, Government Procurement Connections, G&A Partners, Goodwille Pierre LLC-The Pierre Firm LLC, Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce, Houston Airport System, Houston Area Urban League, Houston Business Development, Inc., Houston Community College System, Houstonfirst Corporation, Houston Independent School District, Houston MBDA Business Center, Houston Minority Supplier Development Council, Indo-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Houston, Lone Star College System, Metropolitan Transit Authority, National Association of Minority Contractors, NASA Johnson Space Center, National Hispanic Professional Organization, Native American Chamber of Commerce, Port Houston, Sam Houston State University, Services Cooperative Association, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Texas Southern University, The Texas A&M University System, The University of Texas System, Tri-County Black Chamber of Commerce, UH Procurement Technical Assistance Center, University of Houston System, Women's Business Enterprise Alliance, Women Contractors Association and Women Veteran Business Center.
