The Weekly

Wrap Up

April 16, 2021

 

Your MEMBER ONLY email on all things the Chamber worked on this week

and what you need to know to get the most out of your membership.

Thank you for being a member.

During this time of national crisis, when information and connections are so important,

the Weekly Wrap-Up will be made available to members and non-members.

We are here for you and in this together.

CEO Brief

We are proud to celebrate our 23rd Anniversary advocating, educating & connecting the LGBTQIA+ community!

 

Who would have thought that 23 years ago, when a small group met and discussed a way to network and connect with each other, that we would be where we are today.

 

I want to THANK all the founders and past board members that have served this organization and made it what it is! Three years ago we produced a video for our 20th anniversary, and we said we are just getting started. Even after a tough year like 2020 and COVID, I truly believe we are JUST getting started.

You just have to look at how the LGBT Chamber was in the news this week and we are shaping the debate at the capitol and leading the business opposition to discrimination. We are a force and it is because of our incredible members and community. From small seeds grow giant trees, and our roots are strong and our reach is growing. I am honored to lead this organization and excited on where we are headed.

 

Of course, you saw the Advocacy Update you just got and I hope you read it, it is a very important one. That speaks to what we are doing around ADVOCATE. Read more of what we are doing around EDUCATE and CONNECT below. 

 

Have a great weekend and cheers to the Chamber and 23 wonderful years!

WHAT WE DID

PREDATORS PRIDE NIGHT

We are proud that the Nashville Predators put so much work and support behind Preds Pride Night year after year. 2021 looked a little different, but the Pride was there! Joe virtually dropped the puck, we honored LGBTQ+ police and fire, Olivia Hill was honored as Fan Captain, and Jace Wilder was honored as Mayor of Smashville. Take a look at the photos from the night and add yours in the comments. See you in 2022!

WHAT WE DID

NETWORK CONNECT

We premiered our new virtual venue, Airmeet, at Thursday's PM Brewing Up Business. What did you think? We love the ability to networking with a more "in-person" feel.
