Since its founding in 1979 as the Valley Business Alliance, the Los Angeles Gay/Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (LAGLCC) has become, and remains, a potent voice in the GLBT community, and their contributions back to the community remain a source of pride for their members. The LAGLCC promotes business networking among its members and within its community at large. This network fosters a sharing of information, ideas, contacts and product and services, and so strengthens and expands our businesses, careers and their community.
In a city characterized by congested freeways and increasing “disconnect,” LAGLCC members are committed to supporting one another and building trusting relationships. With evening mixers, networking breakfasts, educational workshops, dinners, joint activities with other organizations, and community involvement, the LAGLCC strives to connect members of their community and unite them for success both personally and professionally.
LAGLCC members live and work throughout the greater Los Angeles area – The San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, West Hollywood, the Westside and Santa Monica, Glendale, Pasadena, Silverlake, Downtown, and many other neighborhoods.
The LAGLCC is managed by a Board of Directors, elected annually by our membership. We are non-partisan, but will always remain politically concerned, especially regarding health, equality, justice, fairness, and the many civil rights issues that impact the GLBT community.
The LAGLCC will continue to grow to meet the changing needs of its membership, and to showcase bright successful GLBT professionals as exemplary citizens and role models for a budding generation.
