Who should be on gay money?

Who should be on Gay Money?

In conjunction with Pride this year, we will be bringing back our Gay Money game. What local LGBT leader would you like to see on Gay Money? Last year’s honorees included Bettie Naylor, Glen Maxey & Barbara Jordan. Who would you like to see join them? You will be able to vote on the Chamber website up until Monday, August 26th with honorees announced the week of Pride. Gay Money will be distributed at member booths at the September 7th Pride Festival at Fiesta Gardens. Collect all 6 colors to redeem for your very own “Big Gay” bag. We sold out last year so make sure you get yours while supplies last!

Pride is almost here!

Austin will celebrate Gay Pride September 1st – 8th including a festival and parade on Saturday, September 7th. AGLCC will have a double booth at the festival where we will be distributing our fabulous “Big Gay” bags (see “Gay Money” above), bumpers stickers, and a fabulous photo booth.

Are you a chamber member who would like more traffic to your Pride booth? Contact us to be an official “Gay Dollars” distributor!

Volunteers needed for Pride

We are looking for volunteers for the Chamber’s Pride booth & Parade entry and could use YOUR help both Friday night (September 6th) and all day Saturday (September 7th). All scheduled volunteers will get admission to the festival and a “Big Gay” bag of their very own! Contact us for more information

AGLCC Wins National Award

The AGLCC just wrapped up a wildly successful National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) conference in Dallas this past week. On Thursday, the AGLCC picked up the NGLCC’s national "Rising Star Award" which represents the nation's best LGBT chamber that has “exhibited a steep trajectory of growth, new vitality and relevance in its community, brought a unified voice to the local LGBT business community it serves, and proven its commitment to being part of the broader national movement.” Watch the video of AGLCC President Jimmy Flannigan accepting the award. We are both honored and humbled by the award and don’t plan on letting up on that “steep trajectory” anytime soon!

The NGLCC conference also enabled the AGLCC to network with other LGBT chambers and business organizations from around the country, to make contacts with many regional and national corporate sponsors, and to learn more about NGLCC LGBT business certification programs. Expect to hear more about these exciting connections and opportunities over the coming months.
