ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Because of the current economic climate, it's getting harder for many small businesses to be successful.

That's why Stacey Key says the right relationships and connections are vital. Key is the new President and CEO of the Georgia Minority Supplier Diversity Council.

The organization certifies, develops and connects small minority businesses with big corporations and government entities.

"If you're a small business, it's very rare that you have access to the resources that GMSDC does from a corporate perspective. We have relationships with chief procurement officers and other professionals who can help you grow your business in corporate America," said Key.

GMSDC has been around for about 30 years and is based in Atlanta. Key says she plans to spend more time in smaller cities like Albany to help businesses make those necessary links.
