The NGLCC is the exclusive certifying body of LGBT-owned businesses. Become a member of your local affiliate chamber to not only leverage local membership benefits, but also take advantage of complimentary national certification. At NGLCC, we recognize that a growth business needs not only a strong local network where business owners live and work, but also business certification and access to all the strategic growth opportunities offered by our national organization. The NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative (SDI) offers certification to LGBTBEs, as well as a host of opportunities to enhance LGBT business' visibility to corporations seeking to do business with LGBT suppliers. Corporations can search for certified LGBTBEs through our exclusive LGBT supplier database, as well as meet face-to-face with potential suppliers at NGLCC SDI matchmaking events, which are held across the country throughout the year. Certified LGBTBEs may also be eligible for scholarship programs, mentorship and leadership training, and other business development tools to help your business grow.
