Changes and growth…

This past year has been filled with significant growth and change for our LGBT and allied communities unlike any we’ve seen in recent history. As we celebrate the first 35 years of GPGLCC, as the nation’s oldest LGBT non-profit Chamber of Commerce, we keep our sights ahead to the next 35 years full of hope, determination, progress and continued success.

We do business with people we know, like and trust and our Chamber provides many opportunities to grow your network. From our monthly Luncheons where you can mix and mingle to our informal monthly Networking Mixers, the Chamber presents numerous opportunities to grow each others’ business.

We’ve also fostered great partnerships with our fellow non-profit and community-based organizations, building better relationships to grow and better promote the community. Our LGBT Nights Out bring a new level to meeting people who are business-minded in a social setting with the arts, sports and other events. Our annual Biz Bowl, held every July, gives the community a chance to play, have fun and make a difference in a non-profit organization’s success. Holiday cheer wouldn’t be the same without the fabulous Festival Of Trees, another annual chance to get a perfect tree, wreath or menorah for your home or business while helping a charity. We are proud and thankful for the support and involvement of our member businesses who make these events a success for GPGLCC and our beneficiaries.

I personally invite you to join the 300 other businesses and nearly 2000 Phoenix community members who call our Chamber “their” Chamber, and experience the difference that diversity, inclusion and equality can bring to your business’ success. Attend a Luncheon, LGBT Night Out, or a NetMixer; or simply sign up for our e-newsletter on our homepage. I look forward to having you involved in our continued success.
