NGLCCNY Announces New Members

NGLCCNY Announces New Members for
January through June 2012
Fast-Paced Growth Trend Continues at New York’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce
New York, NY (July 24, 2012) – The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce New York (NGLCCNY) is seeing steady membership growth in 2012. Forty-six businesses joined New York’s LGBT Chamber from January through June 2012. This is a 64% increase over the 28 new memberships produced in the first half of 2011.

“Our growth is natural given the high quality of programming and business results our members are enjoying,” said Chamber President Richard Oceguera. “

Chamber membership is highly industry-diverse. The new members span fields ranging from film production to beauty to international economic development. An abundance of attorneys, hoteliers, event planners, public relations and marketing agencies, and human resources companies are new members this year.

“I joined NGLCCNY for more than networking – I’m here to be part of a community,” said architect Chad Smith. “My firm is expanding. We’re partnering with developers, pursuing large public works projects. Part of my reason for joining is to pursue LGBT Business Enterprise Certification that will open further avenues of opportunity.”

“I was impressed by the caliber of the Chamber members,” said Manager Michael Civello of Plum Benefits. “A local hospital was a potential client until my contact there left. I thought the deal was lost – and then I met their human resources staff at an NGLCCNY event. We’re discussing a contract now.”

NGLCCNY provides monthly professional community building and educational programming to LGBT businesses, non-profits, their allies and major corporations in New York. Visit nglccny.org to learn about membership and upcoming events.
