Thought you would ask that, check out the press release below!
AMUSEMENT MASTERS RECEIVES CERTIFICATION IN LEADING WOMEN’S BUSINESS ASSOCIATION
August 3 2009, Atlanta, GA – Woman-owned Amusement Masters has been certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). With this marketing tool under their belt, Amusement Masters is now eligible to bid on contracts for corporations and government agencies with supplier diversity programs in place.
The stringent application process is not for the faint hearted. After submitting a 600-page binder of confidential documentation and original writing, hosting site visits and interviews, owner and president Kelly Smink admits she has even more respect for the certification. “While supplier diversity is important, I do not support the practice of awarding contracts to minority companies simply to make quota. This certification increases the credibility of every business that holds it, and documents our integrity and capabilities not just as women but as business people.”
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council is the leading advocate for, and authority on, Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs) as suppliers and vendors to the nation’s corporations. Founded in 1997, WBENC is also the nation’s leading third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women, with WBENC certification accepted by more than 1,000 corporations, representing America’s most prestigious brands, as well as government entities at the state, local and Federal levels.
Amusement Masters is an amusement company that provides comprehensive interactive solutions for a diverse range of clients nationwide. Their team has proven expertise in creating great experiences through an approach of fun and professionalism. (www.amusementmasters.com)
