Every month our board picks a member in a random drawing to be featured on our website!
Each featured member will have the opportunity to respond to a few questions about their business or the company they work for (if they are not business owners). Those in the spotlight will be featured in our “Member Spotlight” ad for one full month.
If you are interested in membership to have an opportunity to network with our growing community of LGBT business professionals and allies, please make sure to head over to our Application page and sign up immediately!
