Applications submitted on or past the expiration date listed on the current certificate are subject to an additional $200 late fee.

Re-certification certificates expire on the date of initial certification.
We understand the climate of Covid and its affect on our MBEs. The Council has decided to wave all late fees for any MBE re certifying within 6 months of certification expiration date.
Subscription Services Application The MPMSDC offers subscription services to any certified MBE who has been certified by one of our affiliated NMSDC councils.  A subscription entitles a certified MBE to receive access to regional products or services from outside of their home territory, which usually consists of local events and training.  The subscription service runs concurrently with your home affiliate council certification. The subscription expiration date will be the same as your home council certification expiration date. Download
