Darline Mabins steps into the role as new Minorities in Business executive director

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – The Springfield non-profit organization Minorities in Business (MIB) mission is to promote economic development and business opportunities through advocacy, networking, and capacity building for women and minority-owned businesses and entrepreneurs.

The organization operates out of a space in the E-Factory building in downtown Springfield. Leading those operations is Darline Mabins, recently hired as the newest executive director of MIB, which went into effect July 1.

Mabins said her first order of business is to learn as much as she can about where the organization is and how far they’ve come.
