Harrisburg, Pa:  The Latino Connection (TLC) proudly announces that it has received the Minority Business Certification from the Eastern Minority Supplier Diversity Council (ESMDC).  TLC is a multi-media company providing services which include business consultation about the Latino/Hispanic community, Translations and Interpretations, and the bilingual bi-monthly magazine also entitled The Latino Connection Magazine.  “Having this certification will open many new doors to hundreds of supplier diversity corporations”, said George Fernandez, Chief Executive Officer of The Latino Connection.

Minority Business Enterprises, such as TLC, greatly benefit from being certified with the largest national organization whose certification is recognized uniformly by Corporate America.  EMSDC provides the only nationally-recognized ethnic Minority Business Certification in Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Delaware.  Certification offers minority suppliers the opportunity to connect face-to-face with many of America’s largest publicly-owned, privately-owned, and foreign-owned companies, as well as universities, hospitals, and other buying institutions.  Leveraging more than 40 years as an industry expert in Minority-owned Business Enterprise enrichment, development, and impact, EMSDC offers certified minority suppliers valuable resources to help your business grow and succeed.

Fernandez remains committed to training, licensing, and to business needs to certify that, “we are providing high quality marketing and communication services to our clients and community.”  In addition, Fernandez stated, “ESMDC today gives an opportunity to advance our business.  The Latino Connection is committed to success.”
