State of the Chamber

State of the Chamber to be held at Austin City Hall on Friday

The AGLCC Annual State of the Chamber date has been confirmed for Friday, January 24th at 6:30pm in the Austin City Council Chambers. The State of the Chamber sets forth the 2014 vision for Austin’s premier LGBT business organization. The presentation is an excellent opportunity for LGBT business owners and professionals, along with our straight allies, to find out what AGLCC means to Austin. Refreshments will be served in the atrium for this FREE event.

AGLCC January Luncheon breaks record – Make sure you pre-register for February!

AGLCC in the Community: Procurement Fair: Shaking Hands with Big Business

AGLCC partnered with the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce in presenting, “Shaking Hands with Big Business, A Procurement Fair” earlier this month. AGLCC brought in National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)’s Sam McClure to present information on the LGBT Business Enterprise Certification (LGBTBE) program. In addition, Ms. McClure met with numerous AGLCC members directly to get them started on the LGBTBE Certification process. Be on the look-out for much more information about this special certification process, FREE to all AGLCC business members.

AGLCC Hits 300 in 2013

As the last days of 2013 ticked away, AGLCC hit another milestone: 300 members (305 to be exact)! Thanks to our members and congratulations to our membership team: Ceci Gratias, Anna Powell, and Edgar Gierbolini.
