Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Commissioner Frank Avila presented Sheila C. Hill Morgan, President of the Chicago Minority Business Development Council (CMBDC), a resolution from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) Board of Commissioners in recognition of the CMBDC’s 47th Annual Chicago Business Opportunity Fair.

The Chicago Business Opportunity Fair has served as a catalyst for developing partnerships between minority- and majority-owned corporations and government agencies. The Fair is the oldest and largest procurement show in the nation devoted exclusively to multi-cultural and multi-ethnic business.

“The Board continues to advocate for policies which supports the aspirations of minority communities and businesses,” said MWRD Vice President Barbara McGowan. “One of the strengths of our program is that we strive to pay vendors in a timely fashion. Often times that payment can make the difference between staying in business and not staying in business, and we understand that.”

“I am very proud to accept this award on behalf of the Chicago Minority Business Development Council,” said Morgan. “The Commissioners and the District are responsive and committed to helping small minority businesses, and we are very grateful for that.”
