The Statewide Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program remains dedicated to bringing vendors and state purchasers together. Minority and women business owners and state purchasers provided very positive feedback on the past Procurement Connection Seminar and EXPO’s format and information presented. We want to ensure that HUB’s have the information to prepare themselves to be Ready, Willing, Able and to do business with state entities and prime contractors.

The 2013 PCSEs will include workshops providing vendors guidance and training on the state government purchasing process. There will also be panels of agency and university purchasing representatives providing information from their agencies’ perspectives. We have dedicated time in the agenda for vendors to network with state purchasers to explore tools and approaches that can help them secure state business.

It will be a pleasure to welcome all Sponsors, Golfers, Volunteers and participants to the Golden Triangle Minority Business Council’s 17th Annual Golf Classic Tournament fundraiser.  This year’s tournament will “only” be a morning flight and will be held on Monday,2013 date TBA.  COMING SOON, for Sponsor Information and Team(s) Registration.

The Golden Triangle Minority Business Council has been proud to be the leader in Southeast Texas promoting Minority Women Owned Small Business Enterprises, and on August 2, 2010, celebrated yet another milestone achievement in its 21 year history by signing documents as an “approved certifying agency” for the State of Texas HUB program.

Mr. Paul Gibson Manager of the Statewide Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program holds the prepared Memorandum of Agreement HUB Certification as he brings greetings to the Board of Directors of the Golden Triangle Minority Business Counci on behalf of the TPASS.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) administers the State-wide Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program for the State of Texas, which includes certifying minority and woman-owned businesses as HUBs and is designed to facilitate the participation of minority and woman-owned businesses in state agency procurement opportunities. The CPA has established Memorandums of Agreement with other organizations that certify minority and women-owned businesses that meet certification standards as defined by the CPA. The agreements allow for Texas-based minority and women-owned businesses that are certified with one of our certification partners to become HUB certified through one convenient application process.

The signing of the Memorandum of Agreement between the State of Texas HUB Division of Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) and the Golden Triangle Minority Business Council (GTMBC) “officially” approves GTMBC’s HUB certification program, pursuant to Texas Government Code §2161.061.   The Golden Triangle Minority Business Council’s petition to the State of Texas to establish a HUB Certification Memorandum of Agreement (“MOA”) with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has been “approved.”  This is an overwhelming milestone in advancing the value and foundation of the Council as the Gulf Coast region’s leading certifying agency for “all local” Minority, Women, and, Small/Disadvantaged Business Enterprises.

Hatcher continued, “And let there be no doubt we have pursued this for many years and owe a significant amount of thanks and gratitude to our State Representative Joe Deshotel who stood in support of this partnership at the beginning understanding and knowing how much the Texas HUB Program will greatly benefit qualified local small businesses of the Golden Triangle who are the backbone of our local economy.”

In accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) has established with the Golden Triangle Minority Business Council (GTMBC), and we are pleased to inform our M/WBE/HUB Vendors, Corporate Sponsors and Friends of GTMBC, qualifying small businesses may now be certified as a HUB through the Council. More details soon.

Noted:   The GTMBC is a 501 (c )(3), Federal Tax I.D. Number 76-0549413.

On April 27, 1989, after formally filing with the Secretary of the State of Texas an official Certificate of Incorporation, Charter No. # 1112115 was duly assigned to the Golden Triangle Minority Business Council as a Texas Non Profit Tax Exempt Corporation.  Responsive to the need for its formation, Chevron, Du Pont, Entergy, Exxon Mobil; Huntsman, Motiva, Total, and Valero came together as the Founding Charter Corporations to launch the Golden Triangle Minority Business Council.


"The purpose of the Golden Triangle Minority Business Council is to promote, educate and develop ethnic minority businesses and women-owned of all races small business enterprises."
