Don’t miss this! ZippyDogs is very excited that LGBT owned businesses have an opportunity to become LGBT certified and open the door to new business. Come to the first-ever, Greater Seattle Business Associations LGBT certification workshop at 10:00 am on March 18 (no cost to attend) and learn if this certification program is right for your business.
There is only one LGBT Certifying body and it is the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) based in Washington DC.
On March 18, GSBA will welcome NGLCC’s Sam McClure, Vice President Affiliate Relations and Justin Nelson, Co-Founder & President. Sam will lead a free late morning workshop on what it takes to become LGBT certified. Nationally, many corporations now include LGBT in their diverse supplier chain and have a commitment to do business with LGBT Certified businesses. Hear first-hand from other GSBA certified members why they got certified and the benefits they have since received.
Right after the workshop there will be a luncheon ($50). Justin Nelson, President of the NGLCC, will talk about the state of the LGBT Business movement, nationally and globally. Justin’s a great speaker who traveled around the globe meeting with LGBT business owners. Justin has a lot to update us on the state of our movement.
Don’t wait, register today for the LGBT Certification Workshop on March 18 at 10:30am at the Renaissance (no cost to attend) and the GSBA Luncheon, also on March 18 right after the workshop at the Renaissance Hotel. You can email your interest for the workshop to email@example.com and register for the luncheon at the same time; or go online at www.thegsba.org to register for the luncheon and workshop.
